staircase poem 29

no overnight parking

again we have snow flurries
& a mix of black ice wet
roads & unwalkable sides

some say this is white
lion at the in of march
but i feel 5th is too late

in like a lamb—cold
standing in the snow
that fell in february

perhaps march will exit
with a roar after promise
of paddy's day storm

dragons like lamb & sheep
hungry dragons not making
transcriptions of wool & wine

three dragons sent aloft
from fredericton o're atlantic
to das deutche drachenmuseum

lamb & rice olives & tomatoes
for dinner on turkish mountainside
& i've a turkey in the oven

no curry shoppe in currie centre
it's not right—just say no
no currie fee imposed on students
