morning poem, May 9, 2017



Long ago

In this very place

Two weeks of June came in April

All the half-measures of early spring

The raw mornings and frigid rains

Were replaced by a fortnight of summer

Straight up

Clear, warm days and sultry nights.


This completely changed everything

Microscopic life forms came on too quickly

And bred with other microscopic life forms

That were still hanging around from winter.

This had never happened before and it produced

All kinds of microscopic life forms

That had never been seen before

Nothing has been the same since

And, oh yeah, people fell in love, too

People who otherwise would never have met

Never otherwise would have had the guts to even ask

Nothing has been the same since.
