Accounting Major
by Charles Springer

  1. Rose one morning
  2. and the spreadsheet sky
  3. opted to be clear and so I let it.
  1. Then just before my egg, a cloud
  2. somewhat substandard eked out of the azure
  3. while I still had only one leg in my trousers.
  1. Down on the street
  2. two men in hurries entered both sides of their Chevys.
  3. Answered, what if no tomorrows?
  1. Anything can happen
  2. when you drink spilled coffee from the saucer.
  1. Down at the Minit Mart a dog with four more legs
  2. had been bitten by a spider.
  3. Next week he’ll splash page five of The Enquirer.
  1. Out on the cloverleaf I circle.
  2. Additions multiplying in the subdivisions
  3. total.
