Icy pebbles

Day 22
amid the romping dogs
motionless forms of their huddled owners

Day 23
Catching the wind for an instant
the leaf jerks forward
like a nervous iguana
across the snow

Day 24
In the subway station, the man on the stairs behind me sings, "I'll catch the next one" in the sing-song usually reserved for mocking (naah naah...), but softly. Is he defying the Fates?
