Climate Change

Maybe there’s a moment, still:

the snow falling,

the body stout, lean, and full –


the beer


and good.


Maybe there’s a moment


a 3rd

door, like transphobia –  


maybe our options

are opening.  Maybe folks need more

than a wink and a nod,



you can’t replicate good

any more than you can



maybe the tobacco industry

has something to say


maybe the day can fold over me

the stillness roil

like somebody shaking a blanket

on a Monday afternoon


maybe I’ve had enough

of this skullduggery


storm the beaches   


somewhere –

wind turbines roll

safely in our heads.
