What do farmer's markets & poetry have in common?

Their structure. They can be seen & read as singular. Both can be enjoyed as a community. Community? You know, an anthology. For what is a farmer's market if not a compilation that one dips in and out of with French plums in her hand. (Well, soon those glorious plums will appear in the markets). Poetry, on the other hand, delivers ripe fruit regardless of season. Imagine that!

    He began the composition intended for his aunt:
    "No charge/ exempt on the hillside? I did shore up
    one by measuring her diagonals
    notaboutnotaboutnotaboutnotabout you

    that you did not report for duty
    our version of heartbreak
    taped together
    in an incident report"
