Jasmine Revolutions

First Tunisia, then Egypt, then Libya
and on it went.
Each week, more news from other places
another necessary collapse
a sour tasting spring
littered with endings.
Time felt backwards
and as the snow called itself
to return to the sky
and the earth puddled
in mirages
she grew younger,
of what whisp of winter
remained hidden in the desert.
