Stacked in the valley

and thick as milk gravy,

it spills over the ridge


in slow-rolling waves

eclipsing the daylight

to swallow you up


in cold cottony gray.

Easy to get lost in the fog

when you can’t see


your horse’s wet ears—

find something dry

to start a fire


and wait for it to lift—

or trust he knows

his blind way home.
