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



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




the birds



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
