April

nature abhors
taxation
as does the
populace,
yet rain showers
and sunshine
blend well this month
as do last minute
important
imaginative
deductions
that give us
a running chance
to refund
ourselves.

 

Diego Vázquez Jr. writes poems to flowers, birds, rocks, rivers, salmon, and people, too! Vázquez’s stories were included in Twelve Branches, and his novels include Growing through the Ugly and The Fat-Brush Painter. You might meet him in your school through a COMPAS residency. He is proud to have his poem stuck in cement (in a Saint Paul sidewalk).
