Feb Brew Worry



It’s an unrelenting month.

as cold and uncompromising

as the iron that fronts it


as brutal and as bruising

as the


hidden inside it

–bubblin’ & boilin’

on the downlow

so…minus the HaHa

until one day–

(and quick, ’cause it’s a short month)

–wham! right in the kisser.

For some it’s a Valentine’s kisser, and in that sense

quite enjoyable

–but not for long—

the February Blues get everybody

in the end, since it’s an exit date.


(funny weird, not funny HaHa, but I think we covered that)

such an exacting month is subject to change

to Leap years

(though it ought to just leap itself)

and restructure itself without warning.

Roaring like a Lion

Battering like a Ram

Jamming horn and bloody claw

against the sudden cohesion

of March…
