Portents are all around us--the challenge
is to see them.
Who would have guessed today's overactive refrigerator
was really a signal of coming cold weather? I didn't think
much of it as I drank the frigid water from the crystalline
cylinder, the green nalgene suddenly cousin to a glacier.
Some day when the cities are flooded freezers will float out
of windows serene as icebergs gently knocking together.
