Blinded


I saw some snow a few days ago,
The ugly black stuff on curbs you speak about...
That one epic morning plowed to the gutters
The same exact moment the day before
We saw a most beautiful, white lace fall upon a silent world.

The same beautiful moment when I cursed being trapped
In my peaceful world, imprisoned against my will,
Forced to recollect and remember, the noises, photos,
Deceased faithful pets, and memories of past storms,
Their snow melting, and allowing me freedom once again.

Full speed into the present today,
I headed untethered towards the thawing town,
Elated to purchase unnecessary pleasures,
Useless tokens and sweets to validate my life
In this dirty world, now that the beauty is gone.
