A Disappointing Winter *edits

The climber blushes against the chain link fence.
A gift of rosemary and sage sing from their stalks,
root-wet and room warm, under the trash tree's arms.

So alive, with a moss underbelly electric in the
middle of February- but bloated, too. The turgid
straight-backed Russian tulip shoots will die
before May, despite their present determination.
