Snow Falling on Montpelier

By John Browning

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 café: I’m no hero
