St. Ides of March
by J. D. Nelson
the rice of spring
St. Paddies Day
the yolk's on ewe --
out like a lamb

(I'm counting sleepy
sheep as they leap
like lemmings
into a sparkling
crystalline sea.)

stare at the sun
until you see yourself
reincarnated as a hawk --
or maybe the lizard in
its talons

may your aluminum teeth
shine with the machismo
of ten thousand
sons of the dragon.

licking lips
& locking loins
in a moist fog of
summertime sleaze,
dripping with courage --

I'm making plans
for a great
glass pyramid
with a special spot
up top,
closer to the sun.
