Let me rephrase that…

There really is a lot of snow.

Snow that puffs off train tracks and whips off roofs.

Snow that closes the underground lines

and glitters in the dark like sugar.

Snow that stills the afternoon,

that falls and falls,

that fills the tracks left by foxes

and smooths the edges of the world.

Snow we shovel into heaps

but blows back over night,

every night,

without a word.
