This is a time
of renewal, rebirth?

Here, we all sneeze more.
It rains.

Dumb slutty kids
underdress for prom.

There, the ice is still frozen.

I saw a female cardinal
in its dull brown beauty
stand out against the brightness
of the day.
It endures.

Not the rejection,
but the recognition of winter.
