Standing With Izzy In

a garden of unfamiliar flowers

although I must have

planted them all, some year or another: they

didn’t get here by themselves;

perhaps I was at a sale and picked a chancy

bulb, a likely looking leafy thing

dug a hole when I got home

waited to see what grew.

sounds like me

plucking choices from a random universe,

blurs of happenstance in color

with a cat meandering through.
