JOHN BERRY

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. 

Mary Oliver, excerpted from Wild Geese

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)
