slow to draw

6-17

i am slow to draw
but quick with the trigger
years wasted
pulling weeds

now i plant seeds

i’m a late bloomer
but the wait
for this late spring
was worth it

it took more time
than hoped
but i finally rest my bones
nightly
in a place where
there is enough rain
daily
to wash all the dirt
and blood from the past

away
