Nervous Birds

This morning the storm had yet to arrive
but outside the birds were nervous
and now the gas stations have sold all their gas
and the governor has ordered everyone off the roads
and the snow has been falling most of the day, lightly,
the roads are frozen, temperature dropping
and the wind, now that it's dark, is rising to a roar

we make fun of the panic
and the weather girl's melodrama
while understanding all the while
we are but an inch away
