Vernal Equinox

There is an unusual warmth tonight
lingering above the town
For a while I drove mainstreet
with my windows down and
sat in the chairs at the coffee shop
I was real cool and regular
like my iced tea people
watched the sun
and its effects on our skin
Now I am walking with the late crowd
cascading through deadened
sentences and flirtations
with shot glasses and lips
We are all happy and warm
grabbing the night with a full sprint
delighted to see the last days
of our cold and lonely winters
