Snowy night car play - μ Poetry, a tinge of e e cummings

Up the street from the Blair (Nebraska) MacDonald's on a snowy December morning

snowflakes lighting on
moscow streets gives inklings of
stay-at-home evening
highway's run move them
off the streets дорогие полиции 
please dear politsii
make space for us
skillful drivers midnight boys
snowy night street racers 
(now a refrain, e e cumming style)

"snowy night street racers"

That sounds scary (and thrilling) in so many ways...

Fun! Hey in answer to your question about the Empire State Bldg: 1956: As a symbol of welcome and freedom to visitors, four large beacon lights are installed at the foot of the tower known as “The Freedom Lights.”

I have no idea how to do this sort of thing in Wordpress. It's awesome!

Ha. Super clever, Jim. I love the Moscow references which because of the Cyrillic alphabet fit so well with the shaped refrain. Thanks. k.

Staying at home waiting for the plows to come makes you hope the plow driver shows up! Lol! Good job.
