December Rites

Standing under the streetlight

Smothered in thick winter clothes

Scarf tight across my nose

Coat stretched far too tight

Breath great clouds of steam

Flakes dance in dim soft light

Dwellings guard heat locked tight

Cars hide in white whale humps

Drifts bid me be wise

The blizzard is not a flurry
