The Complete PoemsIt is snowing and death bugs me

as stubborn as insomnia.

The fierce bubbles of chalk,

the little white lesions

settle on the street outside.

It is snowing and the ninety

year old woman who was combing

out her long white wraith hair

is gone, embalmed even now,

even tonight her arms are smooth

muskets at her side and nothing

issues from her but her last word - "Oh." Surprised by death.It is snowing. Paper spots

are falling from the punch.

Hello? Mrs. Death is here!

She suffers according to the digits

of my hate. I hear the filaments

of alabaster. I would lie down

with them and lift my madness

off like a wig. I would lie

outside in a room of wool

and let the snow cover me.

Paris white or flake white

or argentine, all in the washbasin

of my mouth, calling, "Oh."

I am empty. I am witless.

Death is here. There is no

other settlement. Snow!

See the mark, the pock, the pock!Meanwhile you pour tea

with your handsome gentle hands.

Then you deliberately take your

forefinger and point it at my temple,

saying, "You suicide bitch!

I'd like to take a corkscrew

and screw out all your brains

and you'd never be back ever."

And I close my eyes over the steaming

tea and see God opening His teeth.

"Oh." He says.

I see the child in me writing, "Oh."

Oh, my dear, not why.
