Histamines

Tissues pile up
like fall leaves littering the ground,
getting into that hard to get at place
behind the trash bin.
They hide just like
creatures that go
bump in the night.

Hooray!
That’s exactly how
you know spring is here,
the weather is wonderful
and the tulips are starting
to roll out their red carpets,
but I’m miserable.

My nose bears battle wounds.
My eyes itch.
Just like a star-nosed mole
with a bad case of the gout
rolling around in
a fresh patch of poison ivy
just before
getting run over by a lawnmower.
