Lowly

One forgets one is alive here.
It’s the only way to fool the fates
with their compulsive winding
of string, of the sentences.
You blow kisses to the other
side of the glass. Are you
a museum? The birds
make snow angels
in the new-fallen
white crystals
with their wings,
and a warm cup
of coffee,
wrong,
forgets.
