Dear World:

Don't ask people "How are you?" unless
you're prepared to hear this:

Every single day of my life I want
to put a gun to my head and
blow my fucking brains out.

That's how I fucking feel.

Dear Autumn:

I was mowing the front yard,
one-fourth at a time, when
the pain forced me to rest.
Upon finishing a row,
one bright red leaf
fell on the sweetly-scented grass

and there you were:
welcome!

Dear Diary,

Today:

Delicate purple striped blossoms
on strong, slender stalks,
soon to become indigo eggplants;
a bee in a sunshine yellow squash blossom,
bee-yellow, drenched in pollen; a royal violet Morning Glory,
it's tiny godlight shining brightly;
my garden, wild(!), wild(!) with new growth;
tomatoes, peppers, squash and beans...beans(!)

I tell you

it is all too much, too much---

May, you fertile, fecund bitch,
thank you, thank you, thank you!

Dear Sunday,

You arrived, weeping---
your soft tears gave new life to
four Moonflower seeds.

Dear Diary,

Were it not for the flowers,
& the blue dragonflies
I'd be long gone.
