Snow like Fog 

Snow falls dense like fog
sopping all but the closest
street lamps and most of the cars ahead. 

Its whiteness confounds senses
—no sound, no smell—
a mere scrim of rime. 

Through flurry’s mist—
naked trees, a row of chimneys,
not cold enough to stick here,
this gray slate of cloudy ice
secretes its marshy-crisp whiff.
