In Bar Harbor
winter white skeletal arms
map maple silhouettes

severe black shutters
make more winter sense
against stark snow slopes/

flakes fall
little papers from
this stick snow mill
operating cold though
alive still.

begin to move
little naked boy's knees
cranking up some
distant harbor hill

fingers jogging across this mill
have wrinkled bone-joint skin
winter pond-slew eddying
