The Wedding of a Childhood Friend

snow wedding blue all

cold sharp shots inside

one Winnipeg house

lost long ago a child’s

blue satin slippers

a crown


blue eyelids down

all the white

pretty & sharp & people missing

she was so fast & perfect

all the time

at the golf course running

downhill heels flying

hair flying flowing power

young filly tethered


their bodies that night pressed

all the way together

with no end in sight

but death

did he feel how sharp

her shoulder bones against him

angled & glowing
