Jazz   is
the rustle
of sheets
when you
drag them
back onto
the bed;
the way
dust trips
the dark
fantastic on
velvet stretched
into more
than blue;
thick marrow
soured with
acid reflux,
a raging
waveless ocean
turned to
wine with
the twilight.
And tremors...

The Finest Casket (Complete Story)The chandlers, grocers, butchers, clothiers, and every other merchant in Chantsville was yelling in the streets outside the shop where I was studiously working. Their ruckus combined with the bleats and squawks of livestock wandering underfoot, creating a bustling racket that would drive the unfamiliar ear to distraction.
I was used to the noise, however, and I was so engrossed in my work that I would have sworn the world was silent save for the sound of my chisel biting into the cedar box before me. Delicate curls fell from my worktable, collecting in small drifts upon the dirt floor.
I stopped to wipe sweat from my face. The pause gave me a moment to step back and survey my work.

DecembreTout a changé depuis la neige
Paysage vaporé
Forêt d'arbres morcelés
Ciel d'ombres
Lac gelé.
Traces de pas, blanc sur rouge, rouge sur blanc
Un enfant glisse en chantant.
Tout a changé depuis Décembre
Qu'il est pâle, notre amour
Comme il sombre.
Et tout se vêt de décombres
Frêle décembre, décembre tombe
Froid aux yeux, buée
Tout a changé.
Dans la neige étendus nous riions
Heureux éclaboussés
Dans la neige nous riions
Puis tu t'en es allé
Blanc sur rouge, rouge sur blanc
Un enfant glisse en chantant.

Décembre by EloreCohlt
A poem about change that remains as emotionally distant as change itself.
