temperature rising

the wind soft and
making love to us
today
making everyone
on the bus
grab a partner
and embrace
the pine tree
needles black
and loose
singing mercy
blowing in the
warm breeze
yesterday it was
10 degrees now
50
we strip off our
clothes and marvel
at the day
water streaming down
the streets
the river unfreezing
it is trash day
the houses melting
into the ground
tilting
towards the river
the sound of
tambourines as
I step into
the mud that yesterday
was frozen earth
