ticktockmidnight
in moonblack
you judges draw blind--

blood on mouth on snow
to feast on reindeer meat
forever fields white
gorse dark standing sentinel
and shadows long

we are the winter
we are the winter
crow wing black on white
deep within the well
of dream we
ticktockmidnight

    1. I was inspired by that picture I saw of an arctic nomad (Siberian) eating raw reindeer with her young child. That picture haunted me for days after seeing it — still, if I’m honest. It was beautiful and brutal, and I was reminded of a place before I was born.
