warm full strings
strummed the water toward the sky
and the frozen over lake
yawned and stretched
reaching for golden deja vous
a far off memory
smells of down-home comfort food
charcoal and shorts
flip flops and a canoe
send cracks through the slushy ice layer
the fish reach for the clouds

The mood of a dream lingers in the morning
And the sun shines suspiciously cheerful
as though nothing ever happened
I've known so many people
who've died on gorgeous spring days
without the requisite black umbrellas
to shadow the sorrow
you drive in a limo in your black clothes
passing bicyclists and convertibles
without mourning
the loss of that day
How can denial be inaccurate
wearing shorts and flip flops?
