these are the wonders of being a stay-at-home papa.
This will be the Chinese year of the snake,
my daughter’s sign.
Of beauty and bad temper. Who knows?
Maybe they’re right.
The neighbor’s grass had to be weeded-
it had intruded-
out of undemarcated soil that spread
in front of our houses.
“You’re inspiring me. Spring’s coming,”
an elderly passerby said,
seeing me scrape and clear topsoil
with a well-worn spade.
