Last Wedding

I was born at winter’s end
becoming accustomed with nestling cold
when fire was put out
I was guarding hearth cinders
every night

the groom came late like a snowfall
over the lake among willows
silvery fish bells were tolling
under thin ice near shores

a translucent bride with long arms
was running through me from heels to top
white butterflies from her train
sticking unchastely on my skin

pay attention
said my godparents
if you grasp the earth in your arms
you shall be floating beyond words
even silence won’t matter anymore
it is better to let go of your solitary ring
from your inheritance

it was snowing for years on my left palm
its lines were deepening
another iceberg moved on its way
like a cold kiss
sealed on the front
