An Urban Garden on every Corner

July 18th, 2010

My corner deli-

The ROSE PETALS on 9th Ave. rested between the dirty fingers of the dirty man

Then floated down and landed in between his dirty toes

And finally slipped onto the dirty concrete

But I still wanted them

They were mine

To sprinkle on my sheets at night

Or float on the deep waters of my tub

Pink, red, yellow, white, peach, and even blue

Taking me on wings to places far away

From the dirty things in my mind.

Kisses from nature so close to home.
