The Weeds Are No Big Deal

What’s the Big Deal?

It’s really not a big
deal tossing out
a few words like wild-
flower seeds, seeing
where they land
or if they even blossom,
too many pecked
up by neighborhood
hens, anxious
to chinwag, but I’m
not talking, I’m locked
away, a princess
next to a tower
of books, yelling
at me to save
myself, don’t wait
till the garden’s
has ended.
