seen in streetlight

the plate of cookies
juniper slides stealthily under the closed office door
as if santa were
rejecting the gluten free oreo-like sandwiches
and handing them off to a writer at a pink desk
who could use the fuel
_______
the red blink blink blink
of us walking safely
in the sun-has-set dark
up the curving gravel road hill
_______

the swirl and onslaught of snow
seen in streetlight
from my view on the floor bed
just the movement of snow on dark
without other visual context
gives it a being-out-at-sea
feeling
i watch it pick up speed
and slow down
sometimes trying to follow the whole journey
of a single flake
