Subject(s): New England


Inside, gray smoke curls up,
Outside, white flakes troll down
Against bare maple trees
In an old New England town.

Earth lags securely sealed
To any tropic gust,
Like a plain New England heart
Indifferent to lust.

Nestled in little hills
A waning breed of men
Birth-date their headstones --
What is left then?
