first snow warning – November 17

11.17

snow track early, wind whipping

tires sliding. like unprepared lives

across a heightened drive.

 

where will the road take you when

you haven’t thought it through, and

slipperiness flashes.

 

pause. pump that brake. or let the

automatic overtake instinct. a

different way of dealing.

 

ease the gas, grasp the wheel

look around. another on the road

could miss too.

 

slipperiness on the road of life.

always a chance that that corner

could be a last.
