 We like lists because we don't want to die
                              Umberto Eco

a sparrow
an old hidden leaf under the snow pile
a thin sheet of ice on the puddle in the road
forecast for cold rain
my new heated steering wheel
a sparrow
a cat  looking at the sparrow
both shiver
three more months until Spring
the car starts
another day toward Spring
a sparrow
Here I sit in the cold
the sparrow flies away
no sparrow
I sit, still cold
