Even on Thanksgiving, Poetry Thursday and the Poem Series About the Spring of 2006 Relentlessly March Forward

May 12, 2006
Went to an event after work yesterday

and didn’t head home until close to dusk
the buildings looked neat with their glowing golden windows
and there was a pink cloud like a feather
just like in the books of Maud Hart Lovelace

and this is really weird
this morning
there was
a garden slug crawling across the sidewalk
On the city street
At eight in the morning
And good-sized too
but with only a few inches of slimy silver trail behind it
so there was no telling where it might have come from
Did it just pop into existence there on the sidewalk
or what?
