A Snow Job

by tfawcus

the snowflakes fall
from swirling skies;

a silent drift
that muffles human margins;

a deadly flutter
that numbs the raw
of snow-grit homeless heaps.


Can you hear the crunch
of frozen sidewalk smut
beneath that traffic noise and siren scream?

I do not lie - 
I need your money for the ice!
Rainbows glisten in the sun
as it grows crystal cold.

Then comes the thaw,
and whirring snowplough brush
to sweep away
the residue of sidewalk slush,
assaulting grime
with tears.
