climate change

what this weather
tells me
about you —

that you
kept things
warmer
than necessary —

all the
seedlings
succumbed
to your charms —

green
too early

the dirt
around them
still flaked
with ice ā€”

perhaps
Iā€™m oversensitive ā€”

these gloves
in my pocket

hopelessly
empty

    This is exactly what happened to me. We had a couple of weeks with 60-70 degree days… so I planted my kohlrabi. Right after I planted it we had three days of freezing nights…well down in the 30’s. Now I don’t know if those seeds will germinate. Today, back in the 70’s again….

    I watch
    a dirt patch waiting
    green mirage?
