Burned Roots


He looked at an

old photograph

and commented:

Life and love were

so uncomplicated

back then.

Yes, I said.

How did we manage

to complicate it so?

I think that

I’ve over-fertilized

my garden

and burned the roots.

I think I have

a lot of shit

to shovel out.

    Isn’t that almost always the truth!
