Winter Walk #1

This morning while I walked to work
I watched the hysterical sun try 
to sell a heedless strand of geese
on a whole showroom of
shellacked branches
while a glitzy array of sharp crystals
winked hard to erode the asphalt's
coldest grudge

Awed but undeterred, I just resolved
to step more conscientiously
around all the frozen dowels of
salt-marbled birdshit
