The storm

fells the power lines

blackens the valley–

when the dogs and the ducks

become silent   I’ll worry

KSE  painting

Teenage moms in knit caps

their toddlers in snowsuits

using military-green plastic

garbage-can lids as sleds

down the knoll onto the ice

KSE  painting 2

Looking like tanks

state highway trucks

will eventually sand and salt

the icy back roads

that connect when thawed

KSE  painting 3

Sore throat

slowing the pace

injured-wing sparrow

weighted down

with mud

KSE  painting 4


scraping the

dead skin

off of

yesterday’s heels

KSE  painting 5

An unnamed dog trots

along the unlit shoulder

of the county road

as if he’s got places

to go and things to do
