February Fog

The world pulls the sheets
up around her neck:

a still and silent veil,
the early mystery
of white-grey mist,

she keeps the sunrise
a little further off

I want to tuck myself
under the sheets
with the quiet world,

listen to the naked sound
of my body and the world,
pressed hazy against her

in the early mystery
of this February morning.
