Autumn

This was warmth’s farewell,
the spray of cold rain,
and Thanksgiving while the leaves fell.
We tasted of love in a drunken spell.
But I knew your heart so well,
a migrant wherein nothing can dwell.

Summer

The four angels belted out
a park slide song.
Y’think people would be bustling about,
sweltering under the sun.
But thought the ‘massah king was the key
to blackey killing whitey.
So he sent his family
to a helter-skelter offing spree.

Spring

The bloom of snowdrops beckon
the rebirth of a fallen bird.
Into a hare scampering, on
verdant horizon.
The footprints of the vernal goddess
thaw puddles.
The land abloom—and dressed
in the fickle drizzle’s caress.

Winter

The bleak land lies
as both witness and executioner
while the guiltless condemned dies.
The piercing wind
stabs human porcelains—lost
foraging a forest of hoarfrost.
This is the annihilation in ’32 to ’33
that everyone is too blind to see.
