November on the North Coast


Cold gray slab of cloud
it could be granite
or glacier
sliding frozen, down
from Ontario.

Thirty degrees
and falling
everything sinking
a compressing weight.

Snow crust on the telephone line
looping low over the street
sagging and still.

November
has remembered the Genesee,
turned,
glanced over.

The sagging wires, the granite cloud--you've done it again. Thank you for bringing more of November into my living room than feels right outside my door.
