April may be cruelest

April-type of cruelty helps us
Forget May’s worries to come

When all is not happy at root
Not empty of infection, a drill

Temporarily kept in abeyance.
Meantime’s neighbor makes

Holes in ears by earth probes
With such a fine earth powder

Making a pale ghost of us all
And we forget our own faces.
