Winter Poem

November 25, 2012

Chiminea, now you see her, covered
over by a PVC black liner,
like a condom, on a chimney.
a nurse’s habit, or a cockpit.

And the hanging baskets hang like angels,
decrepit in the Winter Solstice; resting there
for a moment, on the patio, like a blanket,
dieing beautifully, to the tune of the sunflowers

as advised by the reviewer
from The Guardian Weekend.

Chiminea now you see her,
totem in the undergrowth.

Chiminea, now the year’s up,
to go beautifully is an art.
