weeds in the spearmint patch
calling me in to stop and pluck
(young locust trees?)
for a while in the day warming
a sunny distraction
a satisfying distraction
a spearmint scent infused distraction
happy place:
listening to npr while
sewing together a new book
how, despite the to do list,
i let me allow myself this


two sheet trays of tyler pizza
with dan mozerella
set out on butcher block alongside
spinach salad and sunsoy dressing
and kraut still good but getting soft
fermenty yeasty smell as i walk past
of broom corn stalks decomposing in piles
alongside the cistern and near
the building named karma

emory asking me if i want a bowl
of his cereal and then offering
to bring me a slice of watermelon
after dinner and how we talk about
jack’s limpy back foot
me peanut gallerying/commentating
from the tub
(only bath i have ever taken here in my 3 years)
as hillary and donald score A+’s
in the disappointment department
as the second debate airs on the computer
in the office across the hallway
from the water world:
