You'll Poke Your Eye Out

“Midwinter spring” hah sticks

And mud sticks and

Seeds fur clogging

The drain and and and

That's what multiplication looks

Like Zoe serial addition tidal

Winds from the play ground fake

Skims on our artificial pond it

Pays to pay

Attention now count the damns

Of remonstration the damn

Was cold was still damn

Cold I swear to goodness

It's frozen shut
