C/old Front by Dorothee Lang

Every day
h/our plan
of life –

This stack
of b/oxed hopes,
of I th/ink

G/rows
a little higher
a little edgier

When win/ter
moves in
we w/ill leave,
we say,

surprised
by the hidden mean/ings
of our words –

all those layers
we haven’t been
a/ware of

this
c/age
of possibility

this
s/low
c/lock
c/all

  1. This is wonderfully structured, Dorothee, and your usual double meaning of words is played to its finest in this piece.

  2. Oh I love how you do this. Brilliant. Peace…

  3. Always good, and this is no exception. Really like this poem!

  4. This works very well! unlocks the cages of words!
