First Snow Following The Election

There's a hush—a stillness—
that muffles the groundswell,
as flurries flutter and whiteness
blankets our sleep. We weep
for truth, its heartbreaking loss
akin to a missing dog from our youth.
Our boots etch fractals in fresh powder
and we search our neighbor's eyes
for a sign—hoping we are still
on the same side.

"First Snow After the Election" was first published in 2016 in Writer's Resist.
