Flotsam in May

While Spring struts its green
and all the popular people say
that's what I love,

all the dead things
with colors
unsheathed by death

lay littered in beautiful detail
just beneath the dust,
shining when the rain clarifies it.

Lovely skeletons
hold secrets of
red oxygen and blue zinc.
