Five Poems Against Spring

Image

(I)

raging against hope

against change

signs that the world will

move on has moved on

continues moving on

without you

.

(II)

step outside and look up

and glare at the branches

bare your teeth

at threat of spring

knobby buds now visible

the greening grass

furious

.

(III)

I want to burn the world down, and stand in the ashes.

.

(IV)

suffocating

dying from the heavy heavy layer

that I can’t peel away                  completely

for fear of how much more of you

might be lost

.

(V)

burying my face in fabric

if there’s a trace left

maybe maybe maybe

as the tornado mind executes

a thousand thoughts spinning

I will not do you hear me I will not move do not let go of me have you let go of me I will not let you slip away I will not let go I will not let you go please do not let go of me keep hold of my hands do not move do not go

not yet

.
