here we go again

1. Important events which have occurred since I last blogged: I found the text of the next book in the Hunger Games trilogy online. Read nearly half of the book in three hours. The website stopped working. Went to local book shop. No luck. Went to the grocery store. Bought it. Now rationing it.

Long Winter

By Tim Nolan

So much I've forgotten
the grass

the birds
the close insects

the shoot—the drip
the spray of the sprinkler

freckles—strawberries—
the heat of the Sun

the impossible
humidity

the flush of your face
so much

the high noon
the high grass

the patio ice cubes
the barbeque

the buzz of them—
the insects

the weeds—the dear
weeds
—that grow

like alien life forms—
all Dr. Suessy and odd—

here we go again¬
we are turning around

again—this will all
happen over again—

and again—it will
