Green Tobacco

come night
when red clay fields,
the overseer of yesterdays
stretch bare beneath the cold
only hymns hang high from rafters
crushed mint, rosemary mingle with woodsmoke
the screen of eyelids vacant
weighted for sleep  
i turn over, face the wall calendar
hung high by the stove
count the x’s on the rows of tomorrows
when the seedlings kick upward
