api's thlan

we're going up
to api's thlan
past memories i never had
of her constant gardening

gardening is big here too
and definitely back in style
poverty begs a vege patch

how deep the seed
how wet the earth
how warm the sun
when why and what
why when and what

we're going back
to api's thlan
past memories i never had

to ask
of seeds and seasons

moving half-way around the earth (or is it more than that? go figure.) hasn't changed your ability to write one bit.

thank god.

feddabonn said...

Baruk: I am calling from New Zealand.

Me: Nah! You are kidding, you seem right next door.

Baruk: That’s telephony for you.

Me: But shouldn’t you be sounding upside down?

Baruk: @#$$ $#@%$


(One example of 33 fiction. Badly written though... Just to show it is possible.)
