Time To Sweep


May well have been the start to a
dry season, but it must’ve rained
sometime for that amount of leaf
to clog drains & mound the shed
roof – OK, so Spring’s been says
irrefutable proof hard to assuage
in teetering broom sweeps while
you struggle to clear it away

Remember it happens every year
at this time – you see a bunch of
bananas ready to pick, ascend &
discover litter piled damned near
end to end beneath, an unsubtle
hint it’s germane to sweep again
