Im in Love with the Neighbors Gardener

Iím in love with the neighborís gardener. I havenít seen him yet, but I admire his hoses and the trough around the Bodhi tree and his bicycle cart and bushes trimmed to upside down tears crying to the heavens and casting manicured shadows that caress the earth.

Iím in love with the neighborís gardener, who arrives each morning with his hoses and his bicycle cart, who lives in the shadows and in the trough and in the tear-shaped bushes, and who fades with the day taking with him the sun.
