Longer Arms After Picking Tomatoes

:

:

in that blue shirt

fallen scarecrow

could be me

:

some pebbles

& some knotted cord

to show for these days

:

rained on

just like

white pines

:

snail shell left

a thumbprint

in mud

:

snow brought

a lot

of light

:

his room

a shoebox

diorama

:

in time

you’ll fit in

snail shell

:

there’s no one else

to gather

these walnuts

:

footbridge

where there’s

no one

:

white roses

falling

apart

:

the white rosebush

doesn’t

need me

:

in pine shade

my front steps

collapsing

:

cucumbers

climbing

sunflowers

:

chicken wire

encircling pink

lady’s slippers

:

door frame

fallen

in mint

:

sparrow

watching me

drink

:

watering pines

brings robins

& wasps

:

gourd vine

sharing this line

with laundry

:

every starling

in that tree

faces west

:

seed packet’s

lunar white

inside

:

my face

towel’s

frayed

:

my neighbor’s

two chimneys

don’t fall

:

green shack

sinking into

weeds

:

longer arms

after picking

tomatoes

:

every seed

in seed packet’s

fold

:

all this time

carrots’ve been

hiding

:

a stranger

where garden’s

overgrown

:

suddenly

he sees it’s

a slum

:

come home

to 3 fireflies

at my door

:

tomato bush

tall enough

to hide me

:
