Hard Winter

Hard winter. Pipes frozen on the east end and an empty knocking in the copper deep in the belly of the house. A finch sickens and balances between life and death, talons gripped in a fist. My father’s mug shot made visible. We measure things this time of year in how long we can make them last. Fortune and food both.
