There is an anatomy to winter
two burning lungs exhaling ice;
a churning stomach, digesting
remnants of sizzling fall leaves.

Midnight, and a twelve-point
buck waits outside my house,
majestic, bending to the wind,
soaked in mahogany instinct.

It turns its head on the slightest
breeze, muscles taut beneath
the snow-covered down.

I restrain the urge to capture
the moment, pixilate it
some things are better preserved
as poetry.
