AS IT SNOWED A collaboration

  (poem ending with the fine print in a liquor ad)

As it snowed, I heard thunder
 *the gods bowling snowballs to keep themselves warm.
Then the avalanche came.
 *like lovers who run both hot and cold.
The gods buried themselves until their Russian wolfhounds arrived.
 *I remember feeling good that gods had wolfhounds, 
            Russian or otherwise.
The wolfhounds fell in love with the snow.
 *it surrounded them and hounded them, coolly.
It made a wolfhound cocktail topped with a cherry,
 *which Smirnoff copyrighted for the common man.

           "Drink responsibly"

    what great fun. Is this a brother or a hubbie or a son who did the poem with you? I would enjoy it if one of my family liked doing this kind of thing with ME.I liked how you tied this to the alcohol ad! (I envy YOU for free verse talent!)
