The 2024 Rally

Always 2pm. Always the last Saturday of January.
It looks like there could be very little or no snow on Saturday, January 27th, 2024!
That's terrible for more reasons than our dumb rally.
But hell!
We'll still be there and we'll be committed to getting you down the slope one way or another.
Wheels? Fancy footwork? Draglines? We're brainstorming it all this week.
So if you've built something or are working on it now, finish it!
We will honor your time and commitment even if we have to hurl you down the hill to do it!
And the rest of you?
I hope you'll still come on by and cheer the mess even if you don't have to freeze your toes to do it!
all ignorance toboggans into know
and trudges up to ignorance again:
but winter's not forever, even snow
melts; and if spring should spoil the game, what then?


all history's a winter sport or three:
but were it five, i'd still insist that all
history is too small for even me;
for me and you, exceedingly too small.


Swoop (shrill collective myth) into thy grave
merely to toil the scale to shrillerness
per every madge and mabel dick and dave
—tomorrow is our permanent address


and there they'll scarcely find us (if they do,
we'll move away still further: into now
