The Planet Has Shifted

Mar 2, 2018

The planet has shifted to
the obvious darkness of evening 
and fall of mercury,
En masse we find warm clothing and wait.
Snow is an equal opportunity event,
It does not play favorites.
We are buried or we dig ourselves out,
Stoking stoves or freezing.
Sanding or slipping.
Sharing a heated house with shivering rodents
who take chances dying in pink fiberglass
or carried off in the merciless jaws of a cat – 
where death occurs in stages,
in the paws of the whiskered Caligula.
Or they survive in a back cupboard,
gnawing on forgotten macaroni.

Kimmy Sophia BrownKimmy Sophia Brown has loved humor and music and freedom for as long as she can remember.She is especially passionate about the environment and caring for animals.

She writes the column "From the Back Porch" as well as reviews of music in her column "MusicViews". Her goal in her music reviews is to introduce music she loves to people who may not have heard that particular artist or CD. For information about how to submit a CD for review, click here.
