Esprit: Read the Publication

Ice Droplets on a Bedroom Window in January

Brina Platt

 
A galaxy comes alive on my window pane.
     Thousands of ice droplets housing light, 
A universe unseen to the city.
     Two planets: one apricot, the other starkly albino.
—Porchlights. Transfixed, time
     Rewinds. Shards of glass sprinkled upon
November pavement. Fragmented reflection. Blue & red
     Or red & blue. Sirens wail.
Headlights: one dim, the other blindingly bright.
