The Big Empty

A crow rubs his beak in the dust waiting for the storm –
time trickles in the bluest vase with the withered yellow rose;
       canned laughter after canned feelings in a world that only partially
belong to us,
this shredded sky and the loneliness of the wolves hidden within
the debris of our love;
outside, the roots of the trees, like open mouths, drink
                           from the yellowed pissed snow.
