after the winter solstice, the days get longer

staring into the sun on the shortest day of year        waiting for rain       dipping south to avoid frost         i love my life in oakland          but spare palms make me fantasize about l.a.         venice i mean         less glass on the streets          more salt in the air          air of the sea         this train strokes down the coast         to make the same trip tomorrow          but it is today the sun stands still
