One last word 3.33/5 (3)

Plush grass, silky and soft
underneath my bare feet
The blades shiver
listening

to the hush of suburbia
that hovers over the garden
Only chatter over coffee and waffles

The last of the summer warmth
a blanket not quite long enough
cold feet left uncovered

The chatter fades
a reluctant decrescendo
into one sullen word
