Snowy Doorstep: Muse Monday

Footprints in the snow.

Doorstep, boot print
In the snow, cat prints line
Up delicately. Husband passed
Here, neighbor’s cat. What is missing? Could it be?
There’s no newspaper on the step!
Wait, it’s Monday again.
Paper Tuesday.

Backstory: Some time ago, to save money, the local paper stopped printing a Monday edition, saying that there was so little advertising that day, they were losing money on it. Now they print the Monday comics, Dear Abby, and games on Sunday, and include them in the Sunday paper. All other news is on their website, or you wait until Tuesday.

  1. I like mystery moments like this…who came, and who went, and no mark from folded paper as it slides into home base…
