Winter nudge

minnesota. cbslocal. com

December slip-throw
slowly
sleet into slit
of my sanity

the old tires  - in a trunk
the notches are low,
though weight is fine
for balance show

it saved me while turned
as a dancing car/cow,
pursuing the will,
crouched in a line

‘whenever you go –
take your time’, -
radio 88.5 fm says, -
‘but better – stay home…’
winter calamity.

  4. Sometimes it is better to stay at home. It is pity that there is no snow anywhere in close proximity here. :-)
    Well-penned. :-)

  10. I'm so glad i don't have to go anywhere right now. Not that it's all that slick out, but all the roads a are white-topped. Makes for slow going.
