strawberry supermoon shake

the kids were playing video games all night 

like they were going out of style

the moon looked down from the sky. omniscient

a plastic breeze filled our lungs with particles

as we sipped our strawberry soda

out of paper straws. oh 

what a life



i went to see him

he was watching tv 

tired from work he did not want conversation

i silenced the commercials

it made him unhappy 

i wanted to share my day and learn about his

he got angry i 

threw the remote at him 

stomped to the backyard followed 

the clay painted fence

there was new growth coming up 

the round up could not kill it all 

nature is a fighter and 

so am i
