Falter by Samantha Malay

wake from summer’s sleep

to rosehip frost and cold blue skies

shirt cuffs stained with linseed oil

door frame swollen in overnight rain


set aside the forks and spoons

pocket knife

a bar of soap

cardboard box of clothes and towels

sleeping bags and tire chains


touch the stove

and close the curtains

mountain cabin

beyond plow lines


steer around ruts

toward opaque horizon

town for winter again
