Snowfall by Brandon Douglass

out the window    slick
pure white  marrow
blankets
like angels ash    falls   coming down

child's  play, wild-eyed
pratfalls        a pack
                      of crazed eight year olds

ice skating     limp ankle ballerinas

        scoot,     stand,     thump again

miniature butts
black 'n' blue!

the doe softly bides,
her
            heavy
breath
            steams

nostrils flair     a restful
pose
almost like hoofed statue

until distant voices
make haste her exit

kids will be kids,

skittish doe will  
   be getting gone now.
