The View

Suzanne Frischkorn

A green pine cone, one of hundreds

you’ll pick up in late winter. Yes,

it’s June, but winter is coming, some

things you can bet on. Others

you take for granted—

asphodels push through wet earth,

songbirds sing, and your children

perennials of your own making; for

the rest of your life

the view of their backs

                as they push away from you.
