Farm Camp

August 1, 2012

Mom, how do I look?
She has her pants hiked up to her ribs.
Shirt tucked in.
Um, I say.
You might want to pull your pants lower.
No, I like them to be stylish like this!!!
Plus, this is how farmers do it.
Don’t I look like a farmer?
Like a kid farmer?

She puts her hands on her hips
and gazes off at the sky.
I press my lips together hard
and don’t– oh the self-control!–
begin to howl.
