fresh cut grass and the
growl of the mower in summer.
damp tent canvas
and crickets singing.
Motor oil is
sacks of feed, bins of seed and
revving engines at the farm supply store.
Coal tar creosote is
heat rising from the pilings of the dock,
the slap of water, the zing of the fishing line.
Where will memories come from
when fossil fuels are gone from Earth?
