Lately the wind burns

the last leaves and evening

comes too late to be

of use, lately I learned

that the year has turned

its face to winter

and nothing I say or do

can change anything.

So I sleep late and waken

long after the sun has risen

in an empty house and walk

the dusty halls or sit

and listen to the wind

creak in the eaves and struts

of this old house. I say

tomorrow will be different

but I know it won't.

I know the days are shortening

and when the sun pools

at my feet I can reach

into that magic circle

and not be burned. So

I take the few things

that matter, my book,

my glasses, my father's ring,

my brush, and put them aside

in a brown sack and wait --

someone is coming for me.

A voice I've never heard

will speak my name

or a face press to the window

as mine once pressed

when the world held me out.

I had to see what it was

it loved so much. Nothing

had time to show me

how a leaf spun itself

from water or water cried

itself to sleep for

every human thirst. Now

I must wait and be still

and say nothing I don't know,

nothing I haven't lived

over and over,

and that's everything.
