Workaday

October 5, 2008

Tomorrow I start into the Autumn Cleanup
in the garden.
The Triffids have taken over again,
with the Eucryphia locked in deadly
combat with the Virginia Creeper.

It could all become a telling metaphor
for contemporary social and fiscal life,
but I’m staying focused and not becoming
too involved with anything outside my own
yard for some time to come.

Wizard of Oz territory?
