1st March 2018

overnight snowfall
leaves drifts deeper than dogs.
Hares are a no-show

movie night
staying in with the old man
to enjoy the rare solitude
a full half an hour
going through netflix and Amazon
trying to find a film
neither has seen.
We settle on 'The Shack'
where God is played by a black woman
Great, we thought,
but we suffer two hours
of incomprehensible twaddle
just to laud a concept
unknown amongst the white supremacists
of middle class America
