Read excerpts
Scaling back, under cover,
waiting for spring to arrive:

these dogs, laying abed in the raw sun,
those bare trees, shaking outside the window
this chill day,

that frail human connection –
with a neighbor,
with words on a screen, on a page –

are the lightest of filaments
that connect us,
that make us,
that save us.
