Joe Farley Tells You Something Inside Of An Iceberg

28 Inches of Snow

stuck in the house
no whiskey no chocolate no love
how will I survive?

At The Glacier

I sleep with an iceberg,
warmed by its frost.

Light dances and changes color
against blue-white skin.

I remain hopeful,
ever hopeful

for a slight thaw
or sudden crack

that will change the world
and crush me with beauty.
