Dindi Buys Sand

For my papaya seeds
to sprout, Erich says
I need the kind of sand
builders use. A builder,
he tore down his marriage.

At least he doesn’t
call his ex a bitch.

I go to Lowe’s alone,
while Erich, up
on a roof, nails down
shingles, unafraid of

falling, he fell once,
says it won’t
happen again.

Kenneth Pobo has a new chapbook out from Eastern Point Press called Placemats. He has work forthcoming in: S/tick, Rappahannock Review, Fruita Pulp, Weber: The Contemporary West, and elsewhere. You can follow him on Twitter at: @KenPobo.
