The veldt

Our lawn is a little out of hand. There’s a guy that our landlord sends over to cut it but he hasn’t been here in a very long time. We don’t have anything to cut it with so we don’t.

I see it out my window every day. The more I look at it, the more I love it just the way it is. It’s beautiful. It sways through the breeze and birds hop through it. It’s wild and unruly with spontaneous bursts of colour from the weeds.

It’s my own private savannah. It makes me want to prowl through it like an animal, hide so no one sees me.

I like to lay in it and stare at the sky.

I think the neighbours probably think I’m crazy.
