March Ending

EMERSON HAS FALLEN OFF THE SWING

She wanted to fly,
but earth had other ideas.
I hope she learns
nothing from this.

SLEEP DEPRIVATION

Jo wakes too early,
5 AM. She is angry.
Daylight savings sucks.

CURTIS PARK GARDEN COORDINATOR

I control the land.
Here; fill out this form,
give me a check.
Small squares of weedy earth.

I give out plots to diggers,
urban pioneers,
but where are the true owners?
Where have they gone?

EMERSON IS A BAD GIRL

She wakes her sister
from her nap, self-pleased and smug.
Time out: Four hours
(okay, four minutes).
