what/if

the dogwood's blooming   the trees are green but the flagstone's cold on my bare feet almost freezing   it's been an atypical spring    everything written in the harsh hand of so it goes   get used to it pilgrim nothing's the same anymore    the landscape broken into a patchwork of safe and not    most of it not   so we wait for the scythe to be satisfied    wondering how we can fix this    if we can fix this without what has been been taken by the tide
