Animal Rights Poetry By Lee Slonimsky



Savants

Late April's been as cold as early March
but gnats can wait no longer:

spring must be!

They whirl amidst surprising snowflakes;
buzz your nose;
and highlight primal chords
of briefly seething sunlight
across your startled vision.

Gnats are your favorite calendar-savants:

they banish winter where it really matters,
in your timedrenched thoughts.
