Cold Solace

Perfect snowflakes falling
do not alleviate
aches and pains
nor diminish the tons of snow
in front of me.

the opposite of facebook

leaning over snow shovels
the neighbor lady and I chat

and I learn more about the history
of the neighborhood

and the history

Perfect Snow

This morning
while waiting for the schoolbus,
the snow was perfect,

and many flakes were caught
on tongue
by daughter and father.

stranded

color vision decreases
as distance increases

leaving us myopic
beneath
the distant
night sky

post-electronic

square room filled
with chairs & tables
each topped by inscrutable
uninscribed portraits
forever undeciphered
