paycheck to paycheck

gone up in flames
my childhood in ashes …
through tears and smoke
I see a shadow girl playing

grandchildren now adults
what's left to wait for
but the changing seasons,
the pleasure of each new dawn

in the pickles
and I am lost
in the yellow fields
with the stones and the wind

versus fossil fuel

paints a yellow line
across the lawn
