Cherry Valley

by Citizen Scientist



Cherry tomatoes in the sun. I stare blank-faced at the way the body lies with its face to the ground. There was never any reason to think we'd find our way out of this. Any heightened expectation was unreasonable. We all come down to it in time. I wasted the first twenty years learning. How many of my friends died in the process.
