sometime in july

snowy-625170_960_720

sitting inside
this shell
of a car
that will not stir,
will not start,
waiting for dad
to rescue me…
it’s been hours,
where could he be?
.
but the silence of
the snow is sweet
a sound that’s
missing
on the street
in here i hear it
swirl and fall
and i’m amazed
at the sound of it all
.
and if he never
gets here,
if i freeze & die
they’ll find me with
a placid smile,
sometime in July.
