Not all snow is beautiful

By Annette Marie Hyder

This snow — pushed to the sides of the highway
lumpy and looking like batting, like long crib bumpers
for the cars racing around the cradle shaped highway —
is so dirty it looks purple. Not a deep royal purple
but a gray dingy purple that hints at bruises, crashes
and permanent cots.
