light frost and white sky
police cars on the corner
standing idle

I wonder if "stand idle" and "on the corner" could change places?

I see what you mean - subject, action

sometimes it comes down to cadence; maybe diversity of form - I'm still musing . . . reading textbooks on an entirely different subject, currently.

. . . still musing. A "street corner" has significance, much like a kigo . . .

They could change places, but it changes the emphasis. If you end with "stand idle," it seems to be about the police and inaction.

Interesting discussion.


snow and salt
the streets still crunch
in Minnesota

It's actually just what popped into my wee brain - that's a good thing, right?
