Poembox: Spring in February

Caitlin Blackburn takes Poembox this week with a piece entitled "Spring in February".

Caitlin Blackburn
22nd February 2022

spring sleeps under the slick-sweet canopy

we’ve fashioned to wrap ourselves in 

like Sunday’s newspaper.

Her eyes are mired now, with sticky gunk;

the heady viscosity of many month’s rest,

soon to be sponged away

with warm water and cotton, smeared lovingly

in the early morning rays, watery, 

dew-drop smiling.

Her air is stiff, and the wind has a bite

but as golden heat seeps, making tie-dyed swirls on the insides of my eyelids,

I sincerely hope that I may see her again soon.
