the garden that grew

they tilled the soil

seeded the ground

grew a bountiful garden

full of greens

marrow

and

flesh

then she was left

to harvest all alone

this daunting task

until she grew resentful

of the gifts of the earth itself

and she lay resigned

on her back

staring at the sky

while her garden

began

to

rot
