Restoring Loved Ones
by Mike Faran

Let’s whisk out into this
light rain,
the shadowy blue sky

to save the few snow-people left
piddling down Main

This is what good humans do

Let’s take buckets &
spades & buckets to show our


Let’s take them the last of the
summer strawberries
because that’s what they eat

Come with me honey
to help &

carry large bottles of red wine for
the blessing -

the resurrection of those we made
