April 25

poetry

and then a silence
becomes unspeakable

spring rain gentle
except for when it is not

complacency split up
by unusual intermissions

damp green and watery
themes the creek up

the lake spilling
its bounds each leaf

recoiling back
to how it was

or wasn’t
can this transition

be considered
status quo

how a season
always goes

transience
in object definitions

always a before
even these mountains

and the expectation
of after

breaths collect
in cool damp air

seen for a moment
a brief thought, that weight–
