30.1.22 for GoDogGoCafe

snow scene


Taking new steps
on these same old stairs,
time-heavied footfall wears
them to a buffed-up bare.

Take hold the balustrade,
it’s made from an oak branch,
lightning hit it quite by chance.
So steady on. Steady on,

because we’re all just dust.
Just a January wheeze,
taking steps that were,
shall be, and must.
