Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Pollen

May 7, 2008

birds do it,
bees do it,
even the flowers and trees do it

sex is in the air
yellow dust coating every surface
the car, the walk, the window screens

smudging a film across my eyes
mining mucous from my nose
gunking up my throat

Spring is a thrilling season
but all of this fertility
is driving me crazy
