He asked, “Would you rather be:

rainy December day patio furniture –
saturated with uselessness and dripping with fecklessness

a snowplow blade reflecting the July sun –
corroding with inutility and burning with idleness”

I responded, “At least the plow has pleasant weather.”

“WRONG!” He said like Dana Carvey imitating McLaughlin –
more so than like McLaughlin imitating himself –
“Your sun is not its sun.”
