Whipped cream mirage

The city looks like it’s been coated in marshmallow Slurpee. Frozen coconut surprise, crunchy horchata or blended tzatziki margarita. Trees like broccoli dipped in Hidden Valley Ranch, shrubs caked in sea salt, cars laden with pure cane sugar from Hawaii. Lawns thick with instant mashed potatoes.

Maybe all this snow is making me hungry.
