Three Things that Happened in March

Violets purpled the stunted grass
under the last wintering sun, and

a greening verve stirred and
yawned, perfumed lilac zephyrs.

Amid the bustle of bloom and sprout
the April suicides made their lists

and wrote in their letters, the reasons
why spring wasn’t enough.
