The Forecast

You told me, said the snow is coming.
Eskimos have over 50 words for it.
Snowflakes with their unique symbols,
Never the same. This won’t happen again.
You are snowflesh.
Along the street people cover the cars
With an ice sheet.
Bring in the cats who curl into themselves
On a hearth mat.

[Hata Bildir]
