The Unexpected
Thomas McCarthy
 
 
Early April suddenly ablaze1 and unexpected pear blossom
 As rampant2 as de Chardin's sudden forms of life, as
 Delicate as the lacquer-work left over from a raid
 Of winter that scattered3 so many things since autumn -
 You could hardly fathom4 what April brought in on the breeze,
 What organic matter-of-fact things, what an impolite cascade5
 Of broken crockery in pink and green. It’s like that election
 Heard in the distance, beyond the fat privet hedge,
 An election that has set the traffic lights on edge
 And caused this collision of ideas. From our quiet section
 I can hear anxieties rolling in. But are these not the same as last
 Time? Is she not the same? And he, is he not like a gardener
 Gone berserk, flat cap askew6, trying to make regular
 What swarms7; life itself, that is, now swarming8 on the grass?
