becomes sound

when we do the math
while sipping horchata
(it’s basically dumpstered
kaya says)
at cojita’s
jen says
that i don’t have to worry about the numbers
i can just look off into the distance
and think of something else

_______

we talk about our garden day
scheduled for october 27th
(wherein we essentially rip out our garden
and drag the trash to the dump with a u-haul)
i almost cry
(unsure if it makes more sense to say
i took care of it
or it took care of me
or if it was a mutual thing.)

_______

from the water world:

A man empties a bucket of muddy water from his home after a flash flood in Villanueva del Rosario, Spain. -day in photos, usa today
_______

kaya calls over her shoulder
you don’t have to brake going down this hill
as we approach boundary street
i brake anyway
just a little bit

_______
1am
the air
(which has finally cooled
and washes into my window)
becomes sound
(train whistles howling)
