Second-hand Gloves

 

Sooner or later,
some hands will need
second hand gloves, worn by gods
who have seen what snow looks like.
When that happens,
a daisy will bloom and die.
Run to catch its breath,
your gloves pulled back on,

& even the fireplace melting the ice
under your skin, will wait for you.
