Ice

apoemaday:

by Gail Mazur

In the warming house, children lace their skates,
bending, choked, over their thick jackets.

A Franklin stove keeps the place so cozy
it’s hard to imagine why anyone would leave,

clumping across the frozen beach to the river.
December’s always the same at Ware’s Cove,

the first sheer ice, black, then white
and deep until the city sends trucks of men

with wooden barriers to put up the boys’
hockey rink. An hour of skating after school,

of trying wobbly figure-8’s, an hour
of distances moved backwards without falling,

then—twilight, the warming house steamy
with girls pulling on boots, their chafed legs

aching. Outside, the hockey players keep
playing, slamming the round black puck

until it’s dark, until supper. At night,
a shy girl comes to the cove with her father.

Although there isn’t music, they glide
arm in arm onto the blurred surface together,

braced like dancers. She thinks she’ll never
be so happy, for who else will find her graceful,

find her perfect, skate with her
in circles outside the emptied rink forever?

Part II:

Before it was a matter of physical proximity, how state lines and rivers would be wedged between our possibility. But I am folded here for another 2 years and you are too. Distant in regards to actually being, but close in physical proximity. How tragic.

Whenever, Wherever by Bombay Bicycle Club

the way you come alive when you are all alone

Anywhere you are my love let me comfort you
your eyes dripping blue

And I can’t say no not until I reap the seeds I’ve sown
not until I take that long walk home and stare you down

Whenever you want it, wherever you want it

the way you are all alone
the way you hold it all
oh lord I tried and it’s still not enough
