runs a narrow path down
to carports at the back.

Unnoticed by other tenants

streaks of emerald slime
covering the path so
sheltered from the sun !
But no one owned that

We attached her partner’s
family’s bottle of slime
killer to my old garden hose.
She walked up the path
spraying slime killer as I
rolled out the hose behind her.

We killed the slime !

Several years later
it is back again.
