Feb the 5th

 

when it’s hot

I feel that my brain

is shrunken and hides

in musty corners

 

after the change

the cool clears all dust

my synapses spark

I’m awake to it all

 

as sharp as a tack

Feb 4th

after not sleeping

for a month at least

I sleep for 24 hours

wake up to a changed landscape

 

miraculously my world is cooler

 

all the old leaders

have been herded into

a camp for compromised idealists

 

and now …

 

I drink tea

eat toast

watch TV

and fall asleep again

23rd January

at the midnight hour

I cast  a spell on the weather

but no amount of black cats

eye of newt or ten of clubs

will ever shock the earth off its axis

 

extremities cause weather

I should be happy for this circumstance

for we would be extinct without it

but extremities are vulnerable

swallowing much of our own energy

standing still on a treadmill

as it shakes and brakes beneath us

 

speeding up

slowing down

creating chaos
