Snowfall

When the white blanket
falls through the night
with photographic stillness
in a world turned black
and white with
frozen breath and
freezing tears.
A crystalline glean,
fragile and eternal.
So strangely empty,
strangely serene.

Blind Loyalty

by
Rick Brown

Scene: a parking lot very close to old Cleveland Municipal Stadium after a football game sometime in the mid 1980s. The Browns had just lost by double-digit points … 3 touchdowns worth … to the Cincinnati Bengals. Several people in the lot are still tailgating. Rick and his wife Yvonne are in a group of about 10. Everyone is dressed in either Browns sweatshirts or jerseys. Standing directly beside Rick is a burly, spark plug of a man named Mike. He is wearing a Browns jersey, a Browns cap and holding a GIANT beer mug full of beer. A Cleveland Browns logo adorns the front of his mug. The group is mostly somberly sloshed. There is a pall over the entire parking lot. Everyone with the exception of Mike is grumbling.

Rick – Did that game SUCK or what?

Grumbling group – Sure did! We were never IN it! I thought the Brownies were supposed to be GOOD this season!! I might not ever go to another game!

Rick – yeah! It wasn’t even close to competitive.

Grumbling group – Typical Cleveland sports! Grumble, grumble, and grumble.

Rick turns in Mike’s direction.

Rick – You’re awfully quiet Mike.

Mike lifts his giant Browns beer mug as if toasting, brings it to his mouth and takes a long, deep gulp of beer.

He looks at Rick intently and smiles.

Mike – I dunno. I saw some real positives today …  some good things … stuff we can build on for next week’s game.
