Him: 

DAY 29

Her:

something else over something.
petal over bud.
ice over petal.
hand over ice.
mitten over hand.
thaw.

something over something else.
bitterness over emptiness.
sadness over bitterness.
loneliness over sadness.
laughter over loneliness.
thaw.

a hint of spring in my hope,
glass melting in my throat,
the remembered scratch of your coat

         something over something.
