APAD 12: One (Or More) For The Birds

One (Or More) For The Birds

There’s an apricot tree in a front yard
better be quick
there are only a few fruit left
and they will be gone tomorrow

It’s rubbish day and up and down the street
all the bins are out   
some display their contents
for sharp-beaked dumpster-divers

In the vegie garden
beneath the pumpkin canopy
in the basil light fat grubs munch
much faster than they can run
