mine a bit of a

would still make some excuse one
way or another –

let us be more like new growth,
come hell or high water

i don’t suppose spinach

i don’t suppose spinach
ever dreams beyond sun,
water, cool soil, and more
sun. it may never
imagine being folded

or lightly sautéed
with a touch of olive
oil and two cloves
of garlic. simplicity
sometimes eludes
the best of us

the morning after,
there is an unevenness
to the maturing

sun – only one day older,

realities are
beginning to take
shape, but she is
just way
too cool
