The Grass Is Always Greener?

A reluctant glance through the straw revealed
Enough standing water
There was no need to see the seed flow away
The sprinkler was off now and
All that was left to do was hope for some sun
At five in the afternoon
On a cloudy day
At the end of September
Hope and
As you watch your daughter cry and
Complain of a stomach ache
On this
The fourth Thursday and
The third full week
Of second grade
At the new school
You placed her in
Be thankful that
Still stacked in the main hall at Lowes
Just before you get to the artificial Christmas trees

There are bags and bags of seed for sale
