the first of april

looming over the horizon

one step away

from the coming


with a spring that

will zoom through

quicker than you can say

the word quick &

we’re standing

on the sidelines

in our t-shirts &

vitamin d-soaking skin

with all the

sun worshipers awaiting

the coming of their

fiery burst of amazement &

all the water worshipers

ready to wade for months &

submerge themselves in

the cleansing moisturizing

of the earth’s embracing

liquid force,

right before it all begins

to fall in on itself


when autumn brings

the death of leaves &

the death of flies,

to satisfy
