He's an Apt Ballyhooist



He's an Apt Ballyhooist

He’s an apt ballyhooist
pulled out of the aether
of wintry designs.

It’s not the season that churns
the man from trapezoid madness
to a ram with a plan,
rather, it’s the charge
of “ice out,” sunshine,
and the sultry charm
of peeper frogs.

Too much rain
would mark his demise,
too much idle wilting
would make him cry.

But he’ll be damned
this time
if she washes
his ballyhoo barrel
empty
with petrichor perfume
and dreaded hands
of cold death.

Not this time.
