across the border,

across the border,
at the edge of ohio,
for a solid hour,

i wait for sunrise, only
to be greeted by morning haze

someone decided

someone decided
that fig trees should
provide two
crops each year,
marking
the beginning
and the beginning
of the end of
summer, lest anyone
returns home too
early or too late, no
one has to miss out

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: crops

memories need no

you wake up early

you wake up early
to make sure that i have freshly
ground meat for the day’s

projects – i wake up early
to share our family’s love

vivienne, you are

vivienne, you are
exercising those powerful
lungs from the second

floor, ready for a lifetime
of song and dance, some shrieking

6:53 a.m., an early

6:53 a.m., an early
bird attempts to break up
the droning of cicadas,
poking small holes into
morning’s purposeless
play –
6:57 a.m., the school
bus roars by, picking
up the pieces –
we are awake,
listening,
unlistening

you are slightly late,

you are slightly late,
i am slightly early –
somewhere
on a floor just
above us, over
the hum of two
fluorescent bulbs,
someone is plotting
these data points
across multiple
axes
, sipping the last
of Tuesday’s
coffee, closing the
folder on why
we never meet –
the sudden draft
is mesmerizing

monday morning, Dad

monday morning, Dad
took me to see The Great Fish
in all his splendor

we were early, only a
handful of cares in the world

in the early

in the early
stages of
dismissal, we
covet our
bruises
like
badges – no rubbing
alcohol
here – secretly
trading one
affirming
weakness
for another
