MY AFTERLIFE ~








a kitchen garden my afterlife









a tendril

inquires — I just

stand here









I cage my

tomatoes



and return

to this desk









tomatoes in one hand

weeds in the other

he stands up









by-pass pruner

cape-cod weeder and pocket knife

I don't pack a lunch









your bobbing flight

goldfinch ends with

a sunflower's nodding









empty

garden swing

swinging at dawn



you don't have

to see her
