Is It Ever Spring Anymore? … by Doug Draime

 

IS IT EVER SPRING ANYMORE?

Outside the robins return

Pecking the thawing backyard earth

Like benevolent and silent jack hammers

They are relentless, only pausing cautiously

For sounds of human beings: banging crushing

Yelling spewing the arrogance of

Self consumption into the cool polluted air
