Sub Div

suburbs-e1406506583909tracking up the sidewalk
towards a deep reflection

through more drizzling rain

heartbeat counting steady
with hands clenching
light blue aerobic weights

she muses how difficult
to have dinner ready

and have thinner thighs

weeds rustle by a lamp post
a cat pounces
after a cricket

the darkest March 
on weather record

clouds her thoughts

runoff sluices down a preformed gully
pretty much
as the planners planned

suburb
