Along Familiar Paths

There's work to do.
Carpet underlay
to overlay couch grass
and its bright green
companions - calendula,
oats, and leafy greens
unworthy of name.

To have a companion
grown strong and muscled
carry the bolts of fibrous matter
is a privilege those young
plants are denied.

Nor do they have 
an appreciation for
the Magpies' win
over Saints.

In the Silver Princesses
- legitimate rulers of this
wild back yard - three
gorgeous Eastern Rosellas
discuss the safety
of dining here, dare

and declare us
acceptable companions
at meal time.
