Change in the Air 

As the seasons change,

a New Yorker feels nothing

expect for the twenty-four-

hour transition from a rainy 

spring to a squelching summer. 

It takes a lot to shake

the bones of a Big Apple resident.

They need dramatic gestures, 

not subtle shifts. 

Perhaps nature knows them

better than even they realize. 

In the greater scheme, though,

just one over-sized gesture is due. 

They don’t need five days 

of heat wave after heat wave

to know their sneeze-sized spring 

is over. 

I suppose you could

say that’s a testament to

their perception skills–

they notice more than they let on.
