PARKED BICYCLE

Snow gathers itself
into a seat cushion
of pseudo-sheep wool.

Snow paints fenders
into white eyebrow
exclamation.

Snowfall curls
around handlebars
in big-horned sheep
ram strength

powered by
white pedals
set in starting-block
position after kickstand
shot pushes forward.

Snowflakes
abandon metal
in a comet tail
of speed.
