Spring poem ---- koon woon

Bare to Green

Bare is the season
Twig by brittle twig
Updraft and downdraft
Rain followed by sleet

Hot tea in my room
Frigidaire kicks over, hums
Know it is electricity
Borrowed from Susie

T.S. Eliot for measure
Rod McKuen for laughs
In between, ice cream
And e.e. cumming’s “Big Olaf”

So long I am insulated
From the world and insults
I can play this lonely game
Until the twigs bud green

Koon Woon
