Snow’s liminal whisper

between ice and slush,

unhushed, weeps

into stuttering gutters,

crushed. Machines sweep.

    We touched on this concept during our online discussion today about Howard Nemerov’s “Because You Asked About the Line Between Prose and Poetry.” Timely poem, given the weather!

    Love this. Miss you. “Liminal”….love this word.
