FALSE SPRING
(2/15/17)

the sun
heats
the air

the earth

the trees
begin
to bud

robins sing

other assorted
plants and animals
stir
in anticipation

but it's only
February

even though
shorts
and t shirts
are the human
uniform
of the day

hoping
for an early
equinox
we foolishly
grasp
at any such
unwarranted
warmings

we check
the calendar
again

put the
flip flops
back
into the closet

anticipate
the coming
cold front
instead
