30/30 April 9th – does the sunshine make it all better?

Startled by the summer in April

we fling open windows and cast off clothing

cross the street to the sunny side.

Weeds are pulled, lawn mowers uncovered

table tops surface from beneath unopened mail.

Legs emerge from a long hibernation

arms swing naked, chests bounce in vests.

Beer and burnt burgers mask that unpleasant taste

flower filled planters that bad smell

and fairy lights string us along.

This year everything will turn out bright.
