THE TROUBLE WITH SHARING

Hole in the orchard filled
with leaky water troughs
of asparagus rockets

breaking free. We felled
the cherry tree the borers killed,
corded-up for winter fires.

We shared the crop,
top branches first
we couldn’t reach until

word got out and left us
pits. Damn Orioles
and their bucket mouths.

  1. I have a sour cherry tree in my backyard and every July I do battle with the squirrels to harvest enough to use. Damn the squirrels and their fat cheeks.
