A New Year yawning, gaping, with twelve-paged jaw. We clutch ourselves, like we’re about to step into a chill. We jumped into twenty-ten with eyes closed, breath braced, counting down. If we began the year on a frozen lake, we’ll end it on that same lake. We are one dawn closer to Spring. And though we don’t hear the cracks yet, though our friends lull so reassuringly, though they whisper “You got time to turn around”: you don’t. We don’t. It’s slipping away. It’s slipping away. It’s slipping away. The second is already gone. The minute is past. Quick: GO.
Go, with Everything Beautiful, New, Clean, Cherished, Loose, Ready.
Go, with Nothing Certain except the hot Human tremble in your Voice.
