Ribbons Vol. 8 No. 2 Fall 2012

November 8th, 2012

Labor Day
at the State Fair Grounds
piece by piece
midway workers
dismantle summer


I don’t fret
as I teach my young daughter
no one
should touch her


That Dream House

an MBA
that dream house
and three kids
her happy ending
is divorce

one year on
and expecting again
another neighbor
is diagnosed
with breast cancer

my pregnant friend
mows the lawn next door
while her two kids sleep
is this the best
we can hope for?
