December 5, 2016

it snowed today. this is noteworthy in seattle.
the flakes were big and clumsy. i watched them.
snow is an excuse to slow down in this town.

a neighbor and her 2 year old were in the lobby.
"is this her first time seeing snow?" "oh yeah!"
poor kid. so many disillusionments ahead.

warming up the diesel worktruck, this view
reminded me of the finale of my novel, BUZZ,
a seasonal fave of the oversensitive and cynical.

the snow shrouded blades of grass but didn't stick
to the road. i drove to work with the windows down.
doesn't make a difference when the jobsite is so cold.
