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
