Snowman in Kabul

I saw this snowman down the street from my office and felt that I had to go visit the new public art. My colleague, Musadeq, and I admired the snowman's pearl necklace, his green scarf, his red plate of delights, and as we walked away, the artist himself came out to greet us. The security guard gave his gun to the snowman to rest his arms and told us that at 10 p.m. on Christmas night, he came out to build his friend. He finished his oeuvre at 3 a.m., five hours later.
