where the stains still show / the butcher of spring

ready the garden for the
spring
watch the growing of flowers
hear the birds
sing

open the windows
let that early morning air
flow
into your residence
where the stains
still show

where you butchered
them all
one day

buried there
in the garden
are pretty faces
rotten with
silvery decay

they still smile
for you
you tell yourself
in the nightmares
that occupy
your sleeping brain

you are awake
as the bluejay sings
and readies the
day for spring

where the stains still show / the butcher of spring
