Cacti of frost:
collars of lymph nodes stretched out as snowballs
tinsel the soft tissue of blizzards;
irises of snowbanks shade the eye wear of
seaweed pines hoarding Diogenesian automobiles, the pines sea grass hair roots are bed-headed with
And affectively depressed Redwoods shelter
the fall in the back alley
crowning the cosmic sweat of cranberry thorn bed popsicles.
A pair of carved rocks dart into the lampshade,
where preformationist garlands zip compress all but
the number Zero in each mycological arm
