For Andre Brereton by Daniel Sendecki

Snowflakes fall to earth
like tired robins, curling
once about a tree

only to make their
nest in the smutty mire of
soot and slush and ice

there is loneliness
lamplight shines like hot butter
over cobblestones

rows and rows and rows
of madly identical
teeth, these stones shining

like enamel the
windows white with frost are blind
with cataracts

Just, now
host of sparrow
take to the evening sky
like frozen gears, so cold, they seize
and fall
