226 :: Arugula

when I picked this arugula

I had no idea

there were acorns involved,

stacks of dishes

and tomatoes.


it was unclear if the yellow ones were ripe.


were they a new variety?

I usually forget to label the plants

when I put them in the ground

and I have to return to my notebook

filled with notes on seed starting

mixed with lists

of tomato varieties

and basil in the same tray -

a few poems between the lines,

and smudged ink from tears


knowing I was planting the seeds

of tomatoes he would

never taste.
