Minnemingo Review


Snowfall                                                                      Elizabeth Nickerson


Drifiting drearily
Eathwards, the downy
Flake fears the shifting,
Shaving, scrunching
Steel edge of the plow that
The doddering antique New
England man adores driving.
Tracks tear
The sheet of chill
Austerity. The sludge
Of the tarmac smirches
Newborn brightness into
Ancient drudgery of slush.
The antique drives
On. The flake
Anxiously anticipates
Accumulation.
