the sharp pierce of stars

bundled up and snow-crunch walking
on sidewalks cleared to varying degrees
in the perfmafrozen snowpacked state
where even though plowed, the streets are coated
in a layer of packed and pressed down snow
_______
the pot of hand-harvested and processed
wild rice steaming in a pot
from which we spoon out servings
in the center of the table
at ann and kevin’s place
in the candlelight because the overheads aren’t working
_______
how we pause
on the walk home
though the dogs are waiting
to take in the sharp pierce
of stars
