yard work in Wallowa County

through the window a
meadowlark gargles, but
sweetly, for all that.

sprinkler timpani coaxes

a dance from summer-
hagged lawn and dandelions. 

a backfire on the street!
or maybe someone
shot that lawnmower at last.

dig in the yard or just play
vegetable? it’s your call -
you get to decide.
