Saturday Spring

and I say to you
between prescribing my favourite flavour ice cream
and damning my least favourite fruit
I’ll pause

smile and say,
you are the four seasons distilled
stirred and swirled
you are my summer solstice and winter eclipse
stellar and serene

you’re my saturday day Häagen-Dazs Salted Caramel with the nuts in
and I want to make smoothies with you
bananas, raspberries, blueberries, mangoes
no apples,

and this is how I daydream of you in spring,
what will summer bring?
