320–Winter Vegetables

the claims on love are humongous
tonight we fought our way through
to that fierce place where love
never gives up or in to stubborn
already decided hard held thoughts
love’s not much of a cup of warm milk
more like a sleepless night
but at Trader Joe’s today the Indian check out guy
asked me about my day and we talked
winter vegetables peaking out of their
newly made beds and he got inspired
said he wanted to plant now wanted
to feel the earth kiss his dark hands
enter his skin and promise to feed
him the groceries sitting on the counter
did not feel less needed, but we made
a little hope that the future might
come and we would nurture each other
with the fruits of our labor
