spring is disappointing

spring is disappointing
this year
although that globally warm sun
is brighter
and burns with more
potential than
54 years of Cleveland spring
memory

the DJ says
Happy Spring
& Patti Smith
is covering
a future paradise
invoking
my dead emotions
from my stopped up gut
like stubborn crocuses
peaking
between cracks
of ghetto cement
