To Answer Your Question
Why, why, why: nothing more than a mosquito’s whine—
no remedy save mudbaths, silence, and pressing on.
How is another matter: how to bake an apple stack-cake,
mend barbed wire, whistle. Better to do than talk.
What is negotiable as thunder. Forget Farmer’s Almanac.
Ignore all the ways you’ve been betrayed, how many times
you’ve been slighted, or forgotten. Praise the unexpected,
the generosity of rain, the way the forest thickens.
When is a steep snowbank, red sled blazing all afternoon,
laughter pealing until dusk requires cleaning and storing.
As for where, together is what matters, who is we. Because
we can, and we shouldn’t. Because we know no other way.
