The cold this first fall
Like when we first fell

In love, the light still
Warm but the wind chilled,

Like a fresh cube dropped
In the great blue drink

Of sky, stirred by some
Round god for us edged

Now to bear it, life
On life, as we knifed

Through thick groves of graves
In search of a way

Out, the gate now closed,
Our steps all but one.
