this is the end

Okay, so here I am because the ski season has ended. It’s been the best five months of my life so far, and it’s really hard to understand that I’ll have to find something else to do for the rest of the year. I am mad that I even have to spend a bit of time pounding these sparse, terrible lines out instead of being out in that which I describe. It’s just an ode, a time marker. Nothing more. A handful of months and we will be back.

this is the end

of thundering hearts

and straining skies full of you and your friend’s cries

this is the end

of snow capped thoughts

and ideas taking root through the thin layer of board and boot

this is the end

of fear that makes the earth inside your heart shift

an avalanche, a catharsis

this is the end

of an era where we learned to grow bold

from the ghostly substance with which we protect our hearts from growing old.
