Week of: In January by Ted Kooser (poet laureate of america 2004)
 
Only one cell in the frozen hive of night
is lit, or so it seems to us:
this Vietnamese cafe, with its oily light
its odors whose colorful shapes are like flowers.
Laughing and talking, the tick of chopsticks.
Beyond the glass, the wintry city
creaks like an ancient wooden bridge.
A great wind rushes under all of us.
The bigger the window, the more it trembles.
