January Lies by Michael Channing

January Lies

by Michael Channing

january lies and says you're forgiven
like an open pond frosted brittle
it lurks below with its intensions coiled
and the broken bones of last year's promises
covered in glinting dust
and you tipsy away from the fire
tempted by the fragrant glisten
of all that

Think You're Safe, but You're Wrong
