>getting light all over

>

Snowboarding in Red Lodge, he moved through a cloud of snow.
Beneath them, the patrol was preparing for a snowboard competition.
Making snow.
**
At home, he showed us the dings on his snowboard (shh, he hit a tree),
the photos on his ipod (shh, it’s like moving through the sound).
**
While looking at the shots, the flood light in the loft burned out.
Changing the bulb with her brother,
she cautioned: Don’t break the light —
we don’t want light to get everywhere.
