lyrics

All I can find of my childhood today
Is a shortcut through Friday afternoon—
A Scotch-plaid cooler, a friend with no bike,
And blue sky around the white moon.

All I can find of my drugstore guitar
Is a song with all the answers left out.
Long though I held back to wander inside,
What could that song tell me now?

My mother raised mangoes, gardenias, and me,
High as her brown arms allowed.
Wherever or when I pick up a garden hose
It’s her plants I’m watering now.
