    and sometimes the winter is the
    hollow in my voice
    or the sound of a cat's, perhaps,
    footsteps in the hall
    if the hall can imagine itself
    as a silence with great
    green eyes, landscape eyes,
    eyes that are both sun and moon

    i can wait until two.

    and sometimes the winter divides a body,
    leaving 26 unintentional myths
    and the echo of crows in the blue distance.

    that was fantastic... excellent movement from line to line, with wonderful shifting of images, and good use of repetition. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and:

    what a perfect ending! very nicely done!
