Do I want to make a little money he asks me?

Years ago this would have been

Taking out the garbage on a Tuesday

Picking fallen, rotten cranberries off the ground

So the dog would not eat them

For a buck – a day’s work .


His plot

My daddy

He wants to be sprinkled

Somewhere not yet chosen-

Vacations to Florida

are no longer sand and sunscreen

That’s for damn sure.
