Croft

Croft (British Empire Adopts Gregorian Calendar 1752) 9/14

Suddenly eleven days are gone…

Here is a fenced area…small painted white

and perfectly square…

Eleven days rest silently inside…vegetables
in rows for them to eat…throwing pennies
into a well whishing for people to live them…

What of the adjacent house…where
the rest of the year lives…

What of the years before and after…milling
about in the fields beyond…
