|Organic Brandywine Tomato Sprouts|
I’m going to buy an orchard
and pick fruit, waving flies away.
I’ll wear a straw hat
and a sleeveless shirt.
I’m going to garden
and bake pies—
thick ones, full of hearty chunks of tart fruit.
And I am going to walk in the evenings,
when it’s still light,
after grilled chicken and sliced tomatoes.
And I’m going to forgive myself
when I remember all the things I never did.
