Like a Cake

Wiry little trees in oversized pots

decorate the broad expanse

of sugar-frosting snow spread

between cake-topper buildings

whose blueprints might have come

from the idle fantasies

of a pasty chef on a smoking break.

Winter Scene

Snow-ghosted skyline

towering ethereal

over the traffic-rutted

expressway curving

past a few sad trees.
