April Is Her Name

Lee Evans

Across the patio
wheel eddies of white blossoms
from the Bradford Pears.

Hunched in the vinca
by the wind-shaken flagpole,
the female duck nests.

The petalsí fragrance
reeks like some decaying mole
a dog finds lovely.

The noon hour drifts
before the door in fragments
fallen from the sun.
