Metrics in Late Winter

1. Sometimes, I imagine myself swimming.

2. Crow chicks wheedle over crusty black mud.

3. Silver maples arthritic in March sun.

4. Junk mail on a table meant for feasting.

5. I want my house to be pretty again.

6. Sprouts like green dunce caps fool snow under elms.

7. Walking eyes closed to feel light: am I nuts?

8. Dust on laptop like strewn zirconium.

9. Dead goldfinch on fieldstone a bad omen.

10. Copper bandits worked fast and no one guessed.
