New Year [2013]

Hard to wake –

stars were fading,
fire burned low.

All it does is sleep –
nothing good to drink,
too much food to eat.

It can’t be over –
day is bright, cold.

“Happy new year,”
she tells me,
and in star-coated eyes I see

-five futures, narrowed
down
to
one.

[from New Year’s, January 2013]
