my shift at work was cancelled and I went for a walk

out come the puffy coats
folks look like chubby cherubs
and leaves on the trees
turn outrageous shades —
electric lemon, neon brick —
and squirrels get desperate
and so do I
and so do I
But I’m old enough to know
after the snow warmth will return
and all the anorexic trees
will get obese and green
and butterflies will flutter by
(nature’s levitating bow-ties)
and crowds of crows will loiter
on powerlines like surplus commas
as I keep riding by
passing thru the changes
riding a rhythm of heartbeats
thru God’s award winning creation.

I'm so abstract automatic doors at grocery stores don't open for me.
