signs of a Canadian Spring

my crocuses are frozen
my hyacinths are wilted
my snow drops are still hiding
and my tulips all are stilted

my lawn is buried deeply
my door bell doesn’t ring
all of these together
signs of Canadian spring

lawn all ripped to rat shit
flyers frozen to the fence
pot holes every fifty feet
student residences to rent

icicles on my eaves trough
and the damage that they bring
all of these together
signs of a Canadian spring.
