A Sangam Heroine in Boston


(After Kovatattan & A.K.Ramanujan)

These spindly pine trees
are cunning:

the cessation of winter
that he spoke of
when he went through security
at the airport
is not yet here

though these trees
taking advantage of the untimely snow
have put out
long arrangements of jasmine buds
on their twigs

as if for a magical spring.
