Mid Spring Detente

by James Walton (follow)
take it easy sister
I found myself saying
so corpulent this generous Spring
coiled in a pharaohís headstall
puffed up to strike
an arm and wrist
in a tombís pose of warning
shedding a hypnotistís trigger
enough notches this early in the season
to bury me a hundred times and more
a tiger on a doormat
that might strike or wander
or just doze back
into a cosy afternoon dawdle
she doesnít like my nervous version
of an apprehensive Hey Jude
not wanting to give up the old reds
her venomís curdled and lazy
casts the air with a flicker
then yields the path as if I matter
