every june

every june

every june our roadsides bloom with a profusion of these tall, elegant, and stately pink thistles. and every july our hardworking and friendly, if terribly misguided, DOT crews come by with their roadside brush cutters and mow them down. so every june, i try to complete a small, useful harvest, before the big, pointless harvest.
