better use




and with his letter
telling me all about
how they were enjoying
the local strawberries in season,
and how she
(my idol of 32 years)
had been preparing him
strawberry pies
and tarts and the like. . .
well i started to feel
a bit self-conscious
about my thus far
lackadaisical use of our
strawberry season
and felt challenged
to produce something
that better measured up
to the path
that was laid out before me. . .
