April Showers

Jessica Hauger



Tonight we took the cushions from all the chairs on the back porch
and hit them until all of the pollen had been beat into the air.
I know they will fill again with the yellow dust by tomorrow afternoon and so
I resent my chore.
If I ever move to a place where it snows this time of year,
I will scrape the ice from the cushions on the porch until they are clean
to little satisfaction.
