June, on a Saturday

Long, shaggy grass, going to
_______________seed
green, and so many tints
changing with the sun moving up so high ---
the mower
roars as it cuts new paths.

Dew, drying, in early summer
______________sun
air becoming hotter, drier
until sweat begins to
_____________ roll.

Weeds, some sprayed and soon curling
others, long roots, pulled into the air
out of the soil, beginning to
_____________wilt.

Dust, and sweat
and bits of grass cut
smeared across face and arm,
warm and earthy in my nose ---
jeans now dusty, grass, well worn
shirt sweat, picking up this morning's
____________ story.
