Warmish Day


‘nother warmish day, 34° on the patio
irrigation underway in an Orchard too
easily dehydrated by parable to deny

deeply ingrained psychology sprays
delusionary water where precious drops 

of rain would soothe sun-savaged weals 

inane ideas afoot in arid contempt of 
what makes the debate germane is
amply evidenced but I’ll save the trees

so save yourselves wear buoyancy 
vests learn how to float between
troughs and crests of arrant treason 

warming is merely a warning before
the downpour begins and a freeze
proceeds to inaugurate your pain
