My 31 Cannon Shots for January

I have loaded the cannon
for 31 shots in January;
that’s a choice well made
so that the air, the land
even the underground
will hear the boom
and feel the quake
and attest to the start
of another beginning
of a new season of old rituals
and wild expectations
of the new experiences
