In The Weeds
In our desert, water occasionally falls from the sky sufficiently to create Flash Floods and awaken the seeds of future tumbleweeds and voracious milk weeds.
Let me do my best to avoid the farming – garden cliché of discussing the spiritual virtues acquired by weeding their growing soil.
Don’t trust anyone who writes about how pulling weeds freed their minds.
I am walking along the fence line of my tiny farm
looking like the world’s ugliest cheerleader
holding two massive pom-poms of freshly pulled weeds
