SPRING ANGST

C’mon, God… this stinks

it won’t stop raining
the sky is grey
the air is chill

Yeah, yeah, I get it… You’re right

the garden grows
pumpkin sprouts push their way to the surface
sunflower seeds split and stretch
roses flower on the hill
and poppies, thick with swelling buds
promise blooms on Memorial Day
