Cold starts with the sun gone down
warming up at early dawn

Overcast at break of day
clearing up intermittently

Thrice-demented clouds of
country occlusion—where have our
ambitions gone?

We will wait for the sun to get high
and hit the house.

Penetrate the house, ambient

Perpetrate the house, an insurrection
of joists

No adolescent fervor but a
languor, progressive
no longer.
