bale of hay

bought a bale of hay to use as mulch on the garden

sixty years since that warm sweet smell


hoisting on to the wagon

late summer with sun hot; not burning

up in the loft

building tunnels

and forts

uncle shorty falling through the tunnel

chasing us cursing

us laughing

miss that sweet scent

my childhood

even the itching
