I froze
In my chest, puzzled fish
Make final phonecalls to worried moms
“Keep my bedroom until spring.”

But this sunlight blade hacks away
Serious rules and well-posed judgements
(just the ones I made)
(oh, and only the ones I really love)

Now my voice is cut in two
For the old season
For the new season
(the fish are fine. don’t worry.)
