In The Weeds (for M)

I am an untended corner of the garden.
My regard is for the rocks tossed my way.
My anger is my sunlight. Silent evenings
are my rain.

I am left with a packed suitcase.
I am puzzled by my own reflection.
Days are spent making arrangements
to do what I would rather not;

[Hata Bildir]
