Cold Cold World in Colorado


by Suzanne Stroh

July 20, 2006

Hanging from my tools.
Dripping brittle draping icefall.
A lifetime in every swing, remember that.
See the perfect placement point, then bow the head.
Shattered shards on helmet and shell.
Step up in, brave the freezing water.
Every drop that runs down me
Is one more that does not
Grow the canopy, rivulet into pinnacle.
