Snow Sweats Now in Forty Degree Heat



Image result for public domain image of dirty cars

Snow sweats now in forty degree heat
 as old men slouch over coffee 
and 
whisper 
about baseball hopefuls.
The gray salt patina on the vehicles 
shivers off like dry droplets 
suddenly 
exposing 
a rainbow of unexpected color.
Spring does not nudge up with flowers here,
but in dirty rivulets and pastel skies,
breaks like birth water
flooding basement and street,

and splashing, 
playful 
to the thawing sands.
