new york is a sea of black coats today
jostling, teeming, leaning
into the biting breeze of the dark

collars up, heads down, hands deep
in shallow pockets

cold snakes in, relentless
weathering us whether we like it or not
frozen fingers, numb noses

dash home toward warmth
waiting for light and spring
