Ah, spring has sprung in New England..............................


 

Spring: This Ain't No Love Poem

 
Oh for christ's sake
here it  is again.

 
Tulips sprout
like maddening, colorful
cliches.

 
All those blooming idiots.

 
And the chirp
and the chip
on the shoulder
of those morning birds.
What are we left with
some pellets, some small turds?

 
And some chick
in the square
told me she smells
the fragrance of love.

 
And a professor in the yard
said "Hope springs eternal."
Well pal,
I won't be putting that
pearl in my journal.

 
And all those "gifted" Cambridge
children at play
only remind me
of my decay.

 
You bastard,
Spring!

 
You swept away
the cold,
insular comfort
of my Winter's Day.
