  Spring is here, i notice the brown water pooling in the bathroom sink as I wash hands after a day in the garden, and welcome the first forearm rash of the season, 
and I look forward to all this year brings                   

                     burn me
                     burr me
                     bite into me
           in my tangles
              and prick me
                     stain me
       with my senses
                     rough up my skin
              and dye
                    my hands
                    steal my breath
                      morning air
                    sneak into my house
                    fall over me
                    and after it all
                    embrace my body
                      icy river

          this is life
   and i am alive
