Girl Power

Up goes the windmill

The most amazing thing

We have ever done

The blades cut their air

In clear ownership

Of the dream of all

Practical dreams


Now we have to dig

For the wire that goes

From the windmill

To the other power thingie

Where the house is


Dig, pipe, wire

Dig, pipe, wire


Now we hate dirt.

We get in the truck

We rent a machine

It digs the rest of the

Way in a single hour


“We’ll let that be a lesson to us!” she says.

I agree. My hands have blisters.

“What’s next?” I ask.

“The septic tank!”

“Nooooo!” I shouldn’t have asked.

“Power and Poop little girl, power and poop.”

She smiles. “If we can control those, we can control anything!”
