SPRING FEVER
(3/23/10)


gnawing
at my stomach
and crawling
up my spine
the warmth
and sunshine
sing to me
in unrepentant
keys

thoughts
of extreme geography
and swirling circumstance
buzz about
my brain
searching
for sensitive spots
on which to land
in order to maximize
the potential
for movement

my legs
are jittery
and amped up
for a starting surge
to hurl me forward
into a wind
of improbability
that will scatter
my senses
and spread
my dreams
asunder

all that
from just
one glance
through the
window

once outside
insanity
will race
beside me
