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
i watch it pick up speed
and slow down
sometimes trying to follow the whole journey
of a single flake
