frozen fire ladders

feeling threatened by the trees
with their icy glares, reaching
as if i am the flower and it
the gatherer, some call them,
others write notes and send them in the mail
attached to the snail, only the salt is in chase
ice-sickles tinkling while diving
into the white sea
only it is a frozen sea
it’s a sure emergency
as the bigger ones are followed by the limbs
looks like a week before
the temps kidnap freezing
meanwhile i am still sneezing
stuck in, this grasshopper has only one limb
without provisions great
could make you start to salivate
