The Treasure

The Treasure

hunter rushes across
the downtown sidewalk,
shuffles through
an unruly snow bank

fixated on Tim Hortonís
for a caffeine rush.

A satisfied return
provides an easy sway
to his walk, coffee in hand
pauses outside
his building, watching
shoppers scramble
for holiday attention

then hustles back to work
comforted by his prize.
