[ver 1]

sometimes i see a red wheelbarrel in my backyard
leaning purposefully against the wall of my shed
with weeds and grass sprouting up around its wheel
and rain water pooling in its rusting basin

and sometimes all i can see is how in 5 years
i've never once taken the wheelbarrel into a garden
and let the dirt cake underneath my fingernails
while i pull the deep weeds from the warm earth
