Vermont Town Meeting Day 




is a political


where moose — bull and cow —


like downwardly mobile

young adults who have


their cultural inhibitions,

acting like everyday

is Xmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan,

not considering the consequences

of spring thaw,

mud up to their bulbous knees


where maples shed

leaves like rapturous nudists

only to huddle

hidden all winter

under surplus blankets of snow

waiting meekly

for the sap to finally run,

sluicing toward pancakes

and Town Meeting.
