Early Snowfall On The Toison D'or
Rich & poor
Lost in the spiral snowflakes,
Beggars & choosers
Croaking on the freezing air
And it's still only November
On the Toison d'Or.
The cars sleep in the street,
Snoring monoxide in cumulant lines:
It goes up as snow comes down
Slowly driving in all directions
Tearing the night sky to bonnet ribbons.
The feel of the hooded vapours
Breezing through the heart,
Soft chambers of melted emotion
Carbonised in the slow thump of feet.
A hundred or more desk-tenders
All seeking a way home,
Gazing sullenly at the sky:
