Snow Day

The sky after a snowstorm,
just before dawn,

holds all the pastel colors at bay
inside a sea of dark cotton

waiting for someone
to sound the alarm

or just cook bacon
and pancakes

and sit by the kitchen window
and stare

at the swallows
in the finely etched lilt

of the hawthorne trees
above where the car.
used to be
