black ice – a transparent coating of ice on a road, usually asphalt


Winter comes with its driving challenges. Heavy snow, slippery roads, poor visibility … a good driver is aware of them all. Black ice is particularly challenging … it’s hard to see, often unnoticeable until you are trying to navigate across it. It may look like bare pavement, smooth sailing all the way! Black ice can be a metaphor for any dangerous encounter in our lives.

your eyes glitter

crystals of salt

I think you are


your charm a veneer


black ice only shows

in a stray beam

of moonlight

or when headlights are switched

to high
