9/5/19: Not Keeping Up

it’s memory

really—not knowing what’s

come before


8/27/19: Sympathy With the Vegetable world

weeds reaching up

and down—fingers scrabbling

for purchase

8/10/19: Just Deserts

lever broken

and throttle open, we

flood the engine

7/30/19: Important Date


vanished notable after

the fact

7/21/19: Making Mistakes

no longer the whale

of sleep, I resurface to

breathe night air

7/19/19: Gardens Gone Astray

once we looked for green—

now weeds supplant what we sowed

with more eager life
