THE FELONIOUS VEGETABLE GROWERS

I was amazed

when they dismissed the charges

against my neighbor

after

they cited her

for growing a full vegetable garden

 

swallowing enveloping MANGLING

her front yard

 

I mean,

have you ever looked at

corn

tomatoes

squash

up close?

my children were traumatized

we had to take them to a therapist

the way tomatoes

cling to the vine

they dreamed

reptilian arms

thin

wrapped around their necks

in the dark house

some objects are only meant to be seen on shelves and bins

or sliced

on a plate in a well-lit dining room

the whole family

gathered around the table

property values

the neighborhood

now if you’re presenting

blue

plastic turf

smooth

clean

vacuumed twice a week

creates a whole different impression

ordered mind

 

then and only then

and if by chance federal inspectors

carrying out a routine sweep

observe

that smooth surface

they will know who lives here

 

under the sun

illusion 48-i-16

bought and paid for

sweat of brow

every right

to maintain it

without reminders

of a darker time

 

on this we make our stand

in the

bald universe

to which we pray
