Dogs 2015

SNOW DAY
(2/28/15)


driving
45 to 50 mph
down deserted
city streets

throwing
slush and ice
to the curbs
in airborne
waves
of multiform
water

at 6:30 am
on a Saturday
we are grateful
that most citizens
have taken
the weather
warnings
so seriously

we are
selfish
with our
late winter
revelry

by Tuesday
the temperature
will be up
in the 60s

but today
we enjoy
the flurries
and this vacuum
of humanity

Spring
will be here
all too soon
and some of us
will be back
in hiding
