cutting back winter’s

cutting back winter’s
bamboo to make room for growth –
spring has a funny

way of saying hello, armed
with snow, rain, shears, and shovel

when the forecast hits

when the forecast hits
possibly snow,

of Ninety-Three

we made do with what we had –
two digging shovels with the
pointed ends, some southern
summer gardening
gloves, and
sinks and tubs stopped
up with hot water
for the tender
soaking in between
