AS IT SNOWED
  (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"
