Overheard at the farm
You’re changing faster than the sea levels rise
and I’m wondering about stability and whether that’s just
another lie that we’ve been told to make us click
Bought the wrong laundry detergent this one kills
bears and deer and might give us chicken pox.
Blankets over heads as girls we told ghost stories
prophesies that we didn’t know were coming true.
Rain comes and goes but the sound of your voice
on my answering machine reminds me truly of winter.
