typed shirtless in the sun

i need to water my marigold. often i forget to do so.

i don’t have a watering can, so i use large pink plastic cups that scarlett picked out at the dollar store.

my freckles show up in the sun.

i hope no one gets shot, today.

i keep hearing scarlett’s laughter in my head
from yesterday
when i played with her on the swings.

her laugh is sharp and voluminous
wonderfully unending
her blue eyes wide and sweet

i hope no scarlett’s lose their
mommies or daddies, today.

and i hope more people get to hear laughter

sweet and genuine and as-of-yet untouched by malice

than sirens and oh god whys
