“Resolution” by James Brush


a response to Dave Bonta’s “Ministry of Truth”

there’s a snowfield in my dreams where tracks weave off toward winter

bare trees

I imagine leaves buried in distant snow

I wish I had them

I’d use them like someone
else’s words

arrange them so I’d know
what I was thinking

a fire searching through books
for water
