Winter New England

by D. r. Baker

New England winters
are awkward 
to say the least
with the morning sun 
arriving much too early, 
he murmurs a pink 
flare of warning 
from over the steaming sea
before loitering
self-consciously in some 
corner of the sky
for an obligatory hour or 2
making polite appearances
to pink-nosed somebodies
through their frosty windows
and slips off, almost unnoticed, 
for some place in the West
where the days are long 
and the action heavy.
