Snow Crunches Under Foot

The snow crunches under foot
and sounds like peanut brittle
sounds inside your head when
you bite down. The snow becomes
slippery under foot as peanut
brittle becomes slippery on
the tongue before and after
the crunch. I avoid stepping on
the slippery, icy snow for
apparent reasons. Like my chocolate
labs, I used to bite newly fallen
snow. Because I’ve been using peanut
brittle as a simile, I now think
having a piece of peanut brittle
to lick and crunch would be nice
just for me. I can’t remember the
last time I ate peanut brittle or
newly fallen snow, but I can taste
them both, right now — even all
mixed together.
