a bright smudge of sun through the clouds

the faintest crystals of flurrying snow swirling in the air

and below the window a Con Ed road crew

jackhammering the worn street

(easier than pilling a cat)

and digging holes to tamper with infrastructure

that will electrocute you and your dog

through the sewer lids and turn my drinking water brown

looking out the window though

you couldn't tell a thing was wrong
