turning up the earth (day fourteen)

turning up the earth

 

he worked under the sun

 

almost forgot what a hard day’s work felt like

 

it wasn’t honest

fully

 

but it was as close as he could get

in the city

 

the dirt

muddled his fingerprints

 

they called it home

until he washed them away

(wasn’t used to this feeling

 

unclean)

 

the birds

watched

 

didn’t know what he was doing

but appreciated all the worms he exposed with his shovel to be fed to their young

 

like him

they were hungry
