universalism

it was not supposed to snow
the weathermen did not sanction this
the principals had no time to cancel class

it was not supposed to snow
our roads are erased
our homes buried
our skies whited out

it was not supposed to snow
yet it’s washing the booted feet
of snow-lovers, snow-haters,
snow-skeptics & indifferent passerby

it was not supposed to snow
the weathermen are confused
but such is the prerogative
of grace
