six declarative sentences on cold warming

The blame for this cool spring points to the apices of the globe.
It is the fault of unchained jetstreams, tied to polar ice each year.
Freed by melting, they loop lower than arctic air in winter,
allowing this continent to skip heat the way a child jumps rope.
Still, the light has changed, and the crocuses know it.
Open in April, where February called them up last year.
I dream of long days and budding.
Who knew warming could be so cold?
