Today's poem "Snow Falling on Montpelier" (written 1/5/18)

Snow Falling on Montpelier

Boots print down crystal snow in dentation

sinking slightly in powder, blown around

conditions signal winter weather, you know

snow still snows in a white-out situation

cold winds whip the snow snake snarling

micro-crystalline silver flecks are falling

footstep slide-steps up cold granite steps

careful preambular precipitation precepts

handrail holds snow-dusted icy remnants

enter and exit shivering MFA students

weather apps are all reading minus zero

I’m sticking to the cafĂ©: I’m no hero
