Holiday Dirge

outside chimes sing   driven
by blasts of bitter wind
echo their song of summer
steered by gusts of august
five hundred miles away 
doors open & close as bells 
chirp their tinny tune 
and my son leaves for nowhere
a blizzard blows in my heart
pumping glaciers of blood
to frigid fingers   toes
its only song   a dirge
