Such an Extreme Difference

Such an extreme difference
in temperatures from
the upper Northeast
to the lower South-
west —
seems so schizophrenic
at best —
six above
in one,
eighty-six
in the desert sun.
Low pressure
in one,
high pressure
over the sunny one.
Such extremes
seem to
ape
the political
landscape —
such extreme
disparity,
highs and lows,
lefts and rights,
whether in
weather or
political life,
a lot of big blows,
a big stormy
sight,
a super, hyper-
kinetic tragedy
or comedic delight.
