If winter cannot be repudiated,
its seemingly endless
reign can at least be defied.
Rather than taking to
the streets in protest, let us
crowd grocery stores
and cast a vote of discontent.
Our nonpartisan
purchases a symbolic form of
protest against
the season’s one-party rule.
In opposition to
the cold, produce favored
over canned goods,
dissidents all, let us fill carts
and baskets with
plums, peaches and papaya.
Even if non-binding,
uniting Republicans and
Democrats alike,
our resolution to disregard
winter’s dominance
will still be a fruitful distraction.
