On the Last Morning


On the last morning

No wind just snow

Two inches and climbing

Snow muffles sound

No sign of life except

squirrel travels delicately

on frozen electrical line

Stops now and then to

chew ice from toes

Occasional 18-wheeler

floats by quietly

on the highway

Nine o’clock in the morning

On the last day of the year
