Fish Arrival by Leslie Tribolet

Poetry


Jody´s Garden

Lee Evans

Still life in back yard
Bell peppers green as their leaves
Tiny white flowers

Rising from compost
Thrown under the kitchen sink
Dumped from a bucket

Into the black bin
Where it cooked all winter long
Degrading itself

Humbly dissolving
Our breakfast egg shells
My home-made hair cut

Nail clippings tea bags
Apple cores banana peels
Sloughed off from our lives

Smothering the weeds
Under the shredded bark mulch
Winter´s newspapers

The outrageous puns
In the New York Times crossword
Relapse into soil

Red blush from the sun
Ripening on the window sill
Her first tomatoes
