seasonal stirrings

John put gas in the tank
of the contract water wagon -
for the first time since

we signed the on-call contract.

fire, fire! everywhere else!

like some years, we wait
for dispatch, like others

we sit in the dirt and smoke.

a lean year for the hand and

engine crews - but fall
is coming, as long as
doesn’t get here first.
