How Far Beyond?

This rather ragged poem is from the Poetic Bloomings
January 12, 2020 prompt idioms.

How far Beyond?

The text said winter storm warning
but the radio simply mentioned
a trace or inch of snow.

I told my friend
the meaning of that text
was beyond me.

How far beyond?
More than a trace
but less than infinity.

Not a foot or even a yard
perhaps a mile or two.
It is beyond me.
