eulogy for a year

i.mmx.             an untouched snow.
ii.mmx.            a fresh footstep.
iii.mmx.           the beginning of a slow melt.
iv.mmx.           a bucket of perfect mud.
v.mmx.                        a car wreck beside a field of culms.
vi.mmx.           a quick heat levitating above the road.
vii.mmx.          a birthday cake wilting in the sun.
viii.mmx.         a lake thick with relics.
ix.mmx.           a window warm with light.
x.mmx.            a headlight in the wrong lane.
xi.mmx            a Virginia Slim left lit on the gravestone.
xii.mmx.          a small winter reaching the tongue.
