The Poem Series About the Winter of 2006 Continues (Though Spring is Approaching)

February 3, 2006
Last night I had just about entirely convinced myself

to take the bus home

when I stepped outside
and was seduced
once again
by the sky
into walking

A big soft pink spring sky
and soft spring air too
impossible to resist

And on the way home
I saw a small brown paper lunch bag
that someone had put over the top of a fire hydrant
with a frowny face drawn on neatly
in black magic marker
the effect was comical

And the workers seen through the window of a restaurant
bustling around in their sweatshirts
getting ready for the dinner service
reminded me of actors backstage before a play
