Working through the  227 Rules For Monks.

Who knew the simple life could be so complex.


the service station closed

because the owners

couldn’t afford 

the environmental clean up

the profit margin was so slim

it was better to go bankrupt

than pay the fines

for not doing 

the environmental clean up

that they also couldn’t afford

so they closed the station

abandoned it

after a decade they tore it down

to build a condo

or started to

but the soil was too contaminated

to build on

the cost of 

the environmental clean up

added too much to the initial start up

so it was abandoned once again

weeds grew

wild flowers grew

roses grew

the empty lot

became a garden

what was once there

was forgotten

vegetables were planted
