Leaning Fence

Vintage Words

So what if the fence is askew.
It gives the yard character. Besides
resetting wood posts and making
life upright again is not the stuff
of dreams or goals.
Okay, that bird feeder is gray
from rain-bleached wood and needs, 
three coats of paint. One day someone
will purchase a can of steel blue, lay  
a tarp to solve these wearing issues.

The thing about a crack in sidewalk
is that it only widens and crawls snake

like before the front porch. Cracks,

leaning fences, and gray from rain wood

are reminders of the impermanence

of most things.
