Green Hills Literary Lantern

 

 

Crab Grass



oasis edging

salt pans of the Great

Driveway Desert



always dressed for spring

like a vagrant

in his Goodwill suit



green scuttler

from the dark surge

beneath our suburban beach



you are the mind

hungry for euphoria

momentary redemption



time’s trap door

into eternity
