>getting light all over


Snowboarding in Red Lodge, he moved through a cloud of snow.
Beneath them, the patrol was preparing for a snowboard competition.
Making snow.
At home, he showed us the dings on his snowboard (shh, he hit a tree),
the photos on his ipod (shh, it’s like moving through the sound).
While looking at the shots, the flood light in the loft burned out.
Changing the bulb with her brother,
she cautioned: Don’t break the light —
we don’t want light to get everywhere.
