staircase poem 20

just us handcrafted
fine chocolate
spicy ginger bark

bowl of chili
with melted cheese
for my meal

cars not cleaned off
from the snowfall
will be encrusted
frozen by morning
trapped too if
not dug out

water on streets
& sidewalks & some
haven't been ploughed

change of footwear
for my return trip
because of wetness
a soaker on the way
home this afternoon

downstairs dancers
stretch & fling
legs high in air
make obstacle course
of staircase entrances
