in the cold ablaze

standing in the cold ablaze 
with light and wondering 
through days if anyone 
will come at all 
will see at all
or know at all 

kissing in the snow the truth 
of everything that's missed 
a sleuth but standing still's 
the hardest thing 
the strangest thing 
and yet sometimes 

the only thing
