Cabbage & Candy-canes

Life is sometimes candy-canes-
those sweet moments we wish to hang upon
a tree, so soon out-of-season, so soon
discounted in aisle three.

But, more often, it is cabbage-
the excruciating seeding,
the prayers for growth,
the rain that falls too hard,
(or not at all)
until bitter heads peek over the weeds –
but a body can’t live on candy-canes alone
