Spring

By Ezra Blaize

We have vacationed in the land
of daycares, where shoddy street
hoops outnumber fathers, and being

neighborly means respecting the chain
links. A man smiled at us–as a
friend (no), or because he knew we

were on our way away, and it must
be nice knowing there is always a way
away.
