classic rock station on blast
while i yoga in underwear
in the living room

and crazy on you by heart
and some song that repeats
in the dark in the chorus
but cannot apparently be found on
an internet search
_______
how snow is just a section of highway
how winter is a place we drive to

at the first fork
we discover a snow dome
once inside
sound is softened and
light comes in (blueness)
through the thin parts

we joke about how we’d rather be at the mall

another case of coniferous pacific northwest
majesticness this time in a snow world
_______

mt. hood shrugging off its
cloud shawl i say
while we stand at a snowy overlook
_______

i do have the trust for you i say
