Screw Spring; William H. Hoffmann

by ________

**William M. Hoffman, Screw Spring**

Screw spring.

I’m the only thing not blooming.

The arrowhead plant, so carelessly potted,

is growing godammit.

Even the jonquils,

brought for one dinner,

are not quite dead.

Under the bed

the dust is as thick

as wool on spring sheep,

which are undoubtedly

grazing where

grass is growing

at an enviable rate.

Screw spring.

My boyfriend’s taken

to getting up early.

He goes out

to see plants

pushing their way

out of the ground,

and flowering,

and sits by some chartreuse tree

in the sun, breathing air

as sweet as berry wine,

watching girls pass.

Their faces are rested

from sleeping alone all winter.

Screw spring.

I wish it were winter,

when the world’s

this one room.

These walls, this bed

do

not

grow.
