The Plot

dull knife
neglected garden
store bought heirloom
orange cherries

a tomato left un-staked
becomes a snake
in the garden
winding its way
through the weeds

a strawberry patch
filled with clover
in bloom
eases into the rest

four marigolds
a short and crinkly row
still important
to my girl

this is the plot
broken down
still alive
still full
