It changed


It changed, it did,
the weather, I mean,
grass basking in the sun
put on coats of frost
overnight. The newspaper
in its plastic wrapper
was cold, coated
by flat crystals of ice.
Frozen news, encrusted
with the onset
of an early winter,
a seasonal archive,
unread
unheard
unimagined
covered in frost
forgotten.
