A poem a day for a year #42

my friend while on a winter hike
snow falling on hangovers
she barricaded herself in a small wooden cabin
in southern Ohio

I heard the door shut
with a sudden bomb bang
through the forest
she closed the door and wrote down all the days
of her life
I stood outside by a tree
and wondered what it would be like to go
knock on the door
let myself in and hook up our brains

I would carry the jumper cables
from the car
like sacrifices

I would clip them
on our ears
the right way

like writing twin super hero scribes

tap three times on the plank floor

of the cabin

and power the world
