Simone Tropea


at 3 in the morning: cinematic snow

looking out the window I spy the snow
it is only visible in the triangle of light
cast by the street lamp
like some old detective film noir.
the snow is light, and I am smug
it won't settle,
the day dwellers won't see it

but they will have the dandelions in Spring
but not the same
