The moon is sawed straight in half, velvetted
All else draped in orange glow

I think I messed up 
my caffeine intake
with only one delicious cup
of honey infused Mexican beans
sipped at Pemberton’s greenhouse
sweat drenching my clothes

I planted 3 big pots in the afternoon 
of hot peppers and bush tomatoes 
they look so small and hopeful
I’ve arranged small geodes and witches stones 
around them, to help retain water and kill weeds.

The week is moving by too fast
while I lay in bed
with a belly ache
the gloam blueing
worrying a little about the flies
hoping this limp-rag feeling 
is gone by tomorrow
