You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

Those Who Approve
Standing in the riot
A sultry summer makes
Poke and thistle, climbing vines
Trees where trees were not.
Listen, here’s your chance
To listen, first to the clipped
Voice in your head who says
You failed the lawn
The weeds have won. And then
To those who approve.
(from The Lawnmower Poems, Foothills Publishing, 2019)
