Leap

february getting an extra day
is built on so many dependencies:
a leap year dependent on a calendar
calendars dependent on social contract
social contract dependent on lack of alien contact
alien contact dependent on abandoning heliocentric views
abandoning heliocentric views dependent on
believing in the flatness of earth
flatness of the earth dependent on circular reasoning
circular reasoning dependent on planets orbiting their star
these orbits a little too long
for our calendars to make sense of
a leap day a little too early
for the very beginning of a leap year
each year a little too unfair to february
it probably can’t keep up with its fellow months
because it’s too dependent
