R. Bremner

A Golden Shovel

A seizure of the sky, releasing
a shadowstorm, a falling body
of snows in syncopated rhythms, my
very sanity escaping my mind
to meld with the wet white powder, letting
it wander wherever the snow will go.

(A golden shovel poem –
“releasing body, my mind letting go”
is a line from Nicole Cooley’s “Triage Sonnet”, from her book Milk Dress)
