#5 winter solstice 2010

On a night like tonight when the wind is cold and the dark descends  quickly it really feels like December contains magnets that pull all the warmth from the day.

Bait Goat
by Kay Ryan

There is a
distance where
magnets pull,
we feel, having
held them  
back. Likewise
there is a
distance where
words attract.
Set one out
like a bait goat  
and wait and  
seven others
will approach.
But watch out:
roving packs can
pull your word
away. You  
find your stake  
yanked and some  
rough bunch
to thank.
