The Front Slides In

Black spots
wilting mold
like the hordes of Gengis Kahn
I strip the garden bare
the last reeking marigolds
fill the vase on the dining room table
green, yellow and blight speckled tomatoes
fill the counters
peppers stacked in the sunroom
the front slides in tonight
the last day of the garden
a fierce one this year
mudball earth
big yellow sun!
