ALLERGIC REACTION

Admittedly—it does feel
a little
bit decadent

and sort of
sumptuously comfortable

by mid-April—
to simply walk

to work 
cultivating 
in your own—nonetheless 

clogged 
and tight wheezing breast—this 
pure state 

of simple
or
breezy admiration—

the kind 
with absolutely 
none of that sticky 

envy stuff attached—

for those
increasingly congested
and 

quickening 
sounds

of commuter path 
birds
that abound these warmer mornings.

That is
to say—

it all just strikes you 
as an awful
bit tougher of a slog than yours;

a much 
harder gig!

not to mention
such 
constant pressure! 

to wind- 
up
on display out here daily

and—continuously
expected to keep re-

inhaling 
and bursting! 

over and 
over
again—into the goddamn

prettiest—
song you ever heard.
