The Tenant’s Backyard


My neighbor’s yard is overgrown
with daffodils, oxalis, lilies
white as wax amid their leaves.

Emplanted in the center of the rising green,
a tri-fold lounger,
blue and white,
is left with head and foot ends
pointing up.

They look like
two-toned tombstones,
for a buried year.
