River Jordan running wide…

Ice in Eden After

The bees do be
the wet worms squirm
the jazz pizzazz
the birds baby birds
fields do flow in flowers fine
or will someday if snow declines
when cold and ice and sneeze and blow
reverse this curse and head for home
for rent is rent in staying warm
while rest is spent on keeping clone
whose loan of interest paid in tax
lacks specifics
won’t answer back
ain’t no joke
wooden nickle’s fine
it may all make sense
somewhere down the line.
