spring and you

                                    I try
            to keep up
                        with you
                                    but
                        I’m always falling
                                    a step
                                                or two
                        behind
                                    too distracted
            by all the flowers
                        trailing
                                    after you
                                                like love
                        until
            you and the flowers
                        vanish
                                    yet again
                                                into the vast heat
                                                            of summer
