MOWING DIRT
(9/22/14)


three weeks
ago
there was grass
in this part
of the yard

now
almost Fall
there's only
bare ground

still
I run over
the same area
with the mower

creating
a cloud
of dust

staying true
to those persistent
patterns
begun
in the Spring

my eyes
tell my brain
that these motions
are useless

but my mind
is entrenched
in routine

later
I shower

I clean

set
the alarm
for 6am

tomorrow's
Monday
again
