March 19th

from by Rigor Samsa



Wear a heavy coat to match the heady mind
As the Eastern Spells' winds do howl from time to time
It's been a blustery winter in Portland, dear
The never-ending whines result in hopes of Atlantic fear
That you are now head of your kin
Consoling with our skin- Holding us in

Please define your conversation
Please define

It's been 30-odd years or so
Since we've lived out our surnames
And in all the time we've found
It means nothing if you can't explain
What it means to truly love the great state of Maine
And through the bitterness of cold

Please define your complications
Resulting from gentrification
Please define your conversations
Resulting from gentrification
Now please define
Now please define
