In memory of Harriet

If I had my way, I would share my pool with frogs and ducks and fish and turtles and forget that nasty chlorine that stings my eyes but then
the helicopter patrol would spot my green pond and fine me
$1,000 per day out of fear of the Nile Virus bred by
mosquito larva so I guess I’ll stick to stinging eyes
and hundreds of dollars of pool chemicals
to keep it aseptic and clear like most
of the people around this
neighborhood who look
upon my tall unkempt
Rosemary bushes
and Oleanders
with scorn
all hail
suburb burp
thanks for that Harriet
