I Became a Thin Blue Wire. That Held the World Above the Fire.

big snow in japan by takezzo

We all stood still in the snow but time surged ahead.
It went on like this for miles. Frozen track weather and us, climbing out from beneath it.
Lovers stood stranded in doorways
Neighbors trudged up the road clinging to children and their grocery bags.
Whether or not we believed in the accuracy of weathermen or the church. We all still needed it.
This return to seeing each other outside and uncovered. This return to walking.

This return.
It is upon us indeed.

Put on your parka.
Get out the snow shovels.

Prepare the way.
