Kansas

Like a wheel 
Of one of many covered 
Wagons which
Once lined this old town’s streets
Before bricks paved them
Before substantial buildings 
Took up residence and 
Stores opened
Along them
Snowfake 
Heralding Christmas
Snowflake
Never falling, never melting
Snowflake
Sparkling blue at night
Blue starburst
Snowflake
Above a dusty Kansas street
Holding up the bold blue
Sky.
