Croak

Timeless as water.
Frogs and
their ambitions.

Incessant. Continual.
Primordial.
Croaking
their reckoning across water.

Rusty. Exuberant.
A sound as determined
as steel-tip boots. 

March. April. May.
Croaked and soaked.
A spread of silky water.

It fills ones
ears with frogs and spawn,
and spring’s arrival.

  1. Your poem reminds me of childhood, Marilyn: fishing nets and buckets, the local pond, buckets of frogspawn, and Bonny and Clyde, a pair of frogs my friend Caroline and I loved, even when they escaped in the classroom and were never see again, which is why I love ‘Frogs and their ambitions’; ‘A sound as determined as steel-tip boots’; and ‘dark, wet, institutional green’. I was surprised to read that ‘The Stand Up Guy’ was found in Silence of the Lambs!
