Small Stones from the Inconsistent Recorder

January 28, 2013

I’ve kept plenty of my New Year’s Resolutions, but this one hasn’t been one. Today, though, after the county called for a 3-hour delay because of ice that failed to materialize, I had to make note:

County Office Makes the Wrong Call

Freezing rains anticipated
for early morning
failed to materialize.

I have the road
to myself as somewhere
buses sit empty and idle
in their parking lot.

School children remain
in their beds.

The moon winks at me
conspiratorially
from behind her clouds.

We both knew better.
