a nice pink flamingo

that time of year
little old ladies
get the hose out
wash the walkway
vacuum the lawn
fingerwag
the neighbors dandelion kingdom
tisk scowl
trick planting
silk flowers
in white plastic swans
i love them
their lack of
environmental accountability
sustainability
confident
in the rightness
of their spray can
of raid
