June, on a Saturday

Long, shaggy grass, going to
green, and so many tints
changing with the sun moving up so high ---
the mower

Dew, drying, in early summer
air becoming hotter, drier
until sweat begins to

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

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.
