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)
