usual cold

an icicle hangs
on in the sun.
it elongates
in the sun.
it sharpens in
the sun.

an icicle grows
resolute in the moon.
it gathers
itself in the moon.
it spreads
out in the moon.

an icicle hangs
on in the wind.
it grows
angular in the wind.
it emboldens to vocal
in the wind.

the icicle is
fragile.
the icicle is
brief.
the icicle
falls,
draws blood,
and becomes water
to clear it away.
