Whiteout by Sarah Miles


As I exhale, my breath catches
sharp air and I see my words
dance in the space between us,
bump into yours, snag on
the frosty apologies that spin from
your thin lips.

Snowflake-memories nestle on my eyelashes;
I blink them away and you are gone –
your footprints heavy in the delicate snow.
