Applejoy - Chapter 14Chapter 14
On such a cold, windy day, most residents of Ponyville were more than content to spend their time indoors, holed up in their cozy homes against the bite of frosty wind and blowing snow. The skies had been clear of clouds for a couple days, but the arrival of the brisk wind signaled an end to the clear weather.
At the moment, however, the day was still bright and clear, and the airborne drifts of snow that blew their way down Ponyville's streets did little to dampen the mood of those who did venture outside. A few quickly shuttled themselves to and fro between heated buildings, unwilling to let the cold bother them as they went about their business. Even fewer milled about in the plowed city streets, ignoring the cold for the chance to experience the day and enjoy themselves, marveling at the pristine white beauty that had besieged their town.
With so few outside, a kind of fantastic silence had descended upon the town. The only sound that could be heard was the low, subtle w

Brightened by only starlight
Field & Sea.
Gravity is only an afterthought
Hilltops become ladders into the sky while

Waiting to play like we did before
Xenagogue & inviting
Youthful but ancient curiosities.
Zenith induced euphoria continues until daylight…

when a strange man brings the mail.
there might be heavy rain today,
brought by some swollen, murmuring cloud.
the world will whirl and howl,
then settle down,
to die a little more.
o, quickly, love,
press your back against the wall in fear
as the universe spreads her arms and
shuts her eyes
and starts to summon the end of all things.
come with me
to the place of windows full of speechless afternoon
hot windy whispers of half-formed solutions and resolutions,
sweltering sunlit meadows we’ll wander and then forget.
o quickly, love,
let’s to the season of forgetting
and unwind all of our harshest memories
and fill the universe’s mouth
with mute cotton.
i’ll whisper these words to you some evening
with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
