#snowday

Sugar, dust:
a freshly whipped dream;
elderly handfuls of branches
bow
under too many crows
to count my superstition.
Hushed are the cries of
children, praying their school is closed,
and pairs of feet
wriggle in bed,
planning to call in sick.
Outdoors, silence:
slamming through the morning and
clogging up the internet instead.
SNOW DAY! we ‘like’, and
#snowday we trend, as
managers collectively sigh,
scraping their windshields with an
American Express.
Cars slide in side roads, as
a thousand thermostats are tinkered with.
The over 60s clear their driveways,
wishing everyone else
would do the same.
It makes the front pages when
other news isn’t good enough,
and TK Maxx sell out of moon boots
in record time.
