maybe we had plans, maybe we didn't.
an inch of snow is a benediction, the
world made pure again; three or more
in baltimore is absolution—you're forgiven,
                    no need to follow through, time to disengage from the
                    machine, stop the clock, burn your calendar, take a bath,
                    two hours to cook and eat breakfast, followed by a nap.
                        leave the house by four if you're ambitious,
                        step across to the park, borrow a sled, thrill
                        to gravity's tug, slowly walk back up.
