Twenty High

Sound of snow

twenty floors high

the chill, so brisk

sweeps.

Be still

listen

silent city below.

Rumbling train,

slower today.

Cloaked shadows

eyes squinted

heads tilted

braced for impact.

25°F

Feels ten less

shuffling uptown

and down

across the street

despite the storm

and alongside.
