Tickertape

All hearts hammer tickertape time.
....................................................... At last
comes the big black motorcade, gliding past
through an incandescence of drifting snow
that litters the boulevard below
our waving arms and wild white faces
with dots
................ and crosses
....................................... and empty spaces.
