Portmanteau

 

Mother!
Winter!
Is!
Returning!

And I have to rearrange the favorites.

Leaves.shoes.sounds.

I don’t think it’s why she comes back.

But her permissive hushing!
of the world!
bears down those trees!

(myrealfavoritethings)
blur-burned between appointments.
You are what you repeat
I repeat.
