ONE FOR THE BOOKS

Older ladies in coats
so long you’d swear
they’re just modified
sleeping bags.

I’m collecting a vivid
memory reel of this
r e l e n t l e s s
cold snap and the
sky’s powered sugar
palooza.

Inventing new ways
to find zen in the blocks
of icing-white sidewalk –
runways for children
who will spread imaginary
wings.

Companies saying, stay
home you nonessentials.
Office plants left moping
in the dark.

The city sweeping snow
from sidewalks using
snowplows.

STAY ALERT.

Where can I hail a
snowmobile?
