Spring in the city is glorious; no more acidic slush to eat through trainers and dissolve the street-skimming cuffs of overly-fashionable jeans, just light, soft rain that blows in too fast to pick up the pollutants, a quick spritz to brighten the city's face, make it smile at all the little creatures scrambling out of their cracks and crevices to say, hello sun! Hello sky! Scruffy pigeons on the coo, starlings trying out new ring-tones, over-eager queen wasps twitching feebly on the pavement outside the upstairs rooms they just tried to colonise, squirrels scampering pell-mell through graveyards, shedding handfuls of fur from their winter-scuffed tails, happy rats gambolling carelessly in the March sun, sexually-confused blackbirds shuffling their neighbours, looking for the least incestuous match, and the first bees of the year drifing through half-opened doors to toast themselves on uplighters.
