The raw of this winter is permanently baked
but I’ ll fake acknowledgement of a thaw

a tepid lie to the tune of truth
a song of spring pops to music
this moment only, and oily
in contemporaneous conceit
in just how damn cool
just now

a never again youth chorus
to once again bore
and ensure us
March to May
Is the way to salvation

this time tonic
a restorative
without call and response of a requiem
so chill
as winter wins again
