nation of shopkeepers waiting on snow

The Nation of shopkeepers
with its fascination for snow
talk of cold fronts
dreams of snowmen
pictures of car thermometers

insistent persistent chitter

a comfort blanket of white noise wrapped round drooping shoulders the warmth of the familiar

a cup of tea

is it snowing yet?

thousand eyes glancing up to the vastness to see if its ready to fall.
