Fragmentary incantation

Charlene is a prolific writer, having had not only her poetry previously published, but theater reviews and columns as well (many here in Turbula). She's contributed to everyone from Investor's Business Daily to the La Jolla Village News. She was also a contributor to "Chicken Soup for the Volunteer's Soul."

Where do I start, Mrs. Regenhart?
There was a full moon, you see,
And dreams flew in my window
Just like Pancho said they would.
At dawn I was discontent with reality,
Eschewed kneeling in the loam;
I know, failed to weed as I should;
but the world is too much
these days for one my age.

You and I both know that is an excuse.
