effervescence, a violent wind
a fish flexes its invisible fingers
in the frozen air
whipping through the trees
other times lashing grew
damsons from trees
planted oranges from seeds
the lawn crawls outward
my roots grow old and dry and die

once again the goddamn plum blooms
ad multiply inifinite
fucking spring is coming again
winter, my love, is leaving me again
like persephone in love in Hades.  in canadian poems.
