April Time's a Flying 10

Spring Celebration in Florence (not Italy)

Cafe's "open" flag
celebrates wind
by wrapping itself
round the pole
and just a few inches
flutter freely

Students celebrate coffee buzz
by diagramming on napkins
careful not to deface
the books they hope to resell
after all necessary knowledge
has been absorbed

Used bookseller celebrates
the knowledge that remains
on the page, crinkly, sniffed
by white whiskered black cat.

Do you need dramamine for dreamtime?
Do bicycles enjoy their ride on the front of the bus?

Two jogging blonds high five at the corner.
