Last Snow Fall

Last snow fall
For the season
You snuck up
After mischievous rain
Gave spring illusions
But not before
One last arctic blast
Freezing streets
Freezing rain
Freezing all
Large patch of ice
Under bike’s tires
Trail twists
Around a ditch
Around a culvert
Around frozen runoff
Around broken bike
Around broken bones
Wheels refuse
To follow
To turn
To slow
To do anything
But lead towards inevitable
Only option left
Put her down
Force a slide
Onto ice
Onto concrete
