i've looked intently

i've looked intently
at the foot prints
you left in the snow,
measured them with instruments,
metric and standard alike.

tomorrow, in the morning,
if they are still present,
i will make casts of them
using plaster of Paris
or is it of Venice, i forget.

later on, when they have set,
i shall put on a curator's hat
and use my jeweler’s loop
in order to scrutinize them
even further.

frankly speaking, i'm not
completely certain yet
what i should be looking for
nor what i might
unexpectedly discover.

i've looked intently
