Back to Zero

It's snowed. The world's gone silent again,
Its inhabitants all withdrawn. I resolve
To let them remain that way, staring out
Of my living room window, lights unlit,
No TV babble. Even my laptop is stowed
Away. I've been brought to a place that's
Older than letters, more beast than human,
Alone in the elements. Who knows how long
It will take my species to reach me again with
Its eons of history now that it no longer snows?
