Kalime'ra Zoe

Winter has settled in, claustrophobic grey

over a carpet of leaves I never bothered to pile.
I've left them to do their whispering in peace.

It looks like rain, and it's cold.

The mailman hasn't come yet;
the difference that makes is none.

Last night I dreamt my father called

to say that Noah's Ark had run ashore,
empty save one gender-balanced pair.

He said the olive crop was poor this year

and the dove can find no branch
that can bear the long trip home.
