That silent eveningi will go back to that silent evening when we lay together and talked in silent voices, with a fire in the room, while outside slow lumps of soft snow fell, in which centuries of tree went up in continuous ghost-giving-up, without a crackle, hushing as they got near the ground, into morning light.
Not until what hastens went slower did we sleep. When we got home we turned and looked back at our tracks twining out of the woods, in silence, which is the sound that dies inside the sparks from the wedge when the sledge hits it off center telling everything inside it is fire, and where the scritch scritch scritch among the trees, where the branches we brushed against let fall puffs of sparkling snow, puffed up but without arms and so to our eyes lonesome, like stolen kisses, jumped to a black branch, quickly, and yet also--how can we know this?--happy!in shape of chickadee.

So many things that happen here are really little more, than a scratch, if even that, too. Words, are almost ready, meaning if how when we might lose each other, in our mouths, already, to bandage the one whom the scritch scritch scritch, scratches scratches scratches from this moment to that.
