Snowflake In My Eye

Vintage Words


It was a fluke

not a real sorrow

or cause for grief

as in a death, 

faithlessness or a



These are not tears

on my face. I arrived

from a snow storm

and a snowflake got

in my eye.


He did not leave

and go to her, nor

did my favorite dog die

of old age.The water

you see is make believe.

I merely got a snowflake

in my eye.


The car repossessed

and the eviction notice

on my flat is not at fault

here. My health, well

it might be one toe

in the grave news, but

it's not that either.


I do not weep. I am strong.

It had to be a snowflake

wandering in on a fast wind

to stab me in the eye.
