Protest Poem

Of course, I could decide
not to criticize,

to haw or hem,
opting to name

each speck of snow,
the ice scratching

the stubborn leaf
that thwarted autumn’s call

to abandon its hold
and drift, a gondola ferrying

a host of October’s secrets,
to descend, slowly, softly,

like now –
each speck of snow.
