dearest snow-
storm: did you know

someday it will be
warm again? or so
the weatherman said.

and when that day comes
you'll be dead.

so paralyze us
and freeze our toes --
someday we'll drink
you from a hose.

Ohhhh indeed. So many folks ousted from routines or more likely making new ones - de-icing, scraping, roof cleaning, emptying pans from leaky houses. I saw a photo from Chicago Lake Shore Drive that look like a winter war zone. Empty cars filled with snow. Yuck - spring - bring it on!
