Seth Jani




The landscape of the absolute.
The impersonal moon.
The spirits of the frost.
Winter: barren scar
Where the dead are stuck
Crossing into nothing.
Wherever the spiders go
So happiness too, must go.
Shivering and alone,
Drunk on silvered light,
The cottages fill with ice and darkness,
The body with wind and zeroes.
