The Other Side of Snow

For Heathcote Williams

 

 

 

Grief, like snow, falls on everything you know.

It speaks to the frozen ground.

It reeks of earth.

 

It falls where it might and,

Curiously, causes you to reflect that

Death is also your birthright.

 

In the future a punishment might be

To grant someone eternity

‘I hereby sentence you to life…’

 

Then those thus damned

Would look on with pain

As others die again and again…

Full of envy

For they’ll never know

The other side of snow.
