Father sits on the front porch,                                                                on the edge where                                                                                  sun hits flaked cement                                                                        warm to his slippered toes                                                                and iced tea. Mild. No sugar.                                                             No lemon.

 Finches and sparrows fly
around his cracked plastic birdfeeder,
Grosbeaks and red-breasted somethings
peck at the contents, spitting
and breaking black seeds.
Shells litter the grass.
 
I watch father’s eyes droop,
my spade cutting into earth,
halved worms tossed
with dandelions and worn red poppies. 
 
My fingers dig up roots
while sheets overhead curl
in beams of yellow sun.
The clothesline strung.
On the edge.
