New Superstitions All Over the House

Poem

When edges of ferns
Turn brown;
Summer!
When bug guts
Stick to windshield;
Sunshine!
When everyone weeps
At the same time;
Safety!
When image of louse
Appears on toast;
Great Calm!
When you are mean
And I am hurt about it;
Time for a Trip!

    Love the structure, buildup, title, closing, tone, concision.

    Contrast between the
    when..&..then is terrific
    terrifying
