a winter place, Omar Zahzah


where trees bear flickering lamps

where home is always that much farther

where sleep is the bread you break

tomorrow a sunken bone

where spiders weave silence

where trees thread silence

where home won’t leave

where sleep bears mold

tomorrow buried over

where silence winds over

spiders, and over

trees, and home.
