Faith in Vermont: A Morning at the DMV

Posted on September 23, 2014 | Blog Category:
By Faith Gong



(NOTE: The above photo is not the actual Middlebury DMV.)

I spent the morning of my 39th birthday in the waiting room of the Middlebury DMV.

Here are a few things that you should know:

-The Middlebury DMV is a "mobile" DMV, which means that it's not in operation every day. It's open for business in the Middlebury Courthouse every Thursday, and alternating Wednesdays. That's it.

Poem: Teepeeing

Teepeeing

 

The high school jocks have a tradition

    of sneaking out of their parents’ homes,

driving around our neighborhood

 

chucking rolls of toilet paper

    into the winless trees.

The trees weep tails the rain

Faith in Vermont: The New Playground

By Faith Gong



Middlebury's Mary Hogan Elementary School got a new playground this summer. If you're the parent of a young child, this is probably old news. I myself have taken my four daughters to what we call "The New Kidspace" on a weekly basis for the past month; they play on the playground while I gaze longingly at the school building and count the days until vacation ends.

Poem: They're Laying a Pipeline

Posted on August 21, 2014 | Blog Category:
By Gary Margolis



 

That’s not hay they’re spreading

    to mulch a garden, to keep the weeds

down. That machine isn’t a hand

    shovel to turn the ground for a bed

of seeds. It’s made for shallow ditch-

    digging, on Exchange Street.

For the other land taken in Vermont.

    It’s today’s day for laying pipe,

to bring the gas here from somewhere

Faith in Vermont: How Does My Garden Grow?

Posted on August 12, 2014 | Blog Category:
By Faith Gong



I'm an ambivalent gardener. This stems from my upbringing: As the only child of parents who have Miracle Gro running through their veins, I grew up observing the obvious pleasure that gardening bought my parents, along with the beautiful results. Weekends at our house were often spent in the backyard, where my parents' tireless weeding, mulching, planting, and cutting turned our suburban acre into a verdant paradise.
