Snow Birds


In the desert, 
all the houses
look the same.
Hard to say 
why this one 
bears our name.
Snow birds
have taken
over the pool,
trying so hard  
to be cool. 
Some just stay
inside the car,
sensing this time 
they've gone 
too far, turning
into something new,
finding out at last  
they can't go back,
no matter who
they are.
