THE SELLING OF AN ISLAND ORCHARD

 

“Even if the trees

get pulled up

or torn down

it won’t matter

to your mother”

Kristine Zoodedoo

 

No, it won’t matter to My Mother

She’s dead

with Her Monument to Death beneath Them,

Her white-blossomed Garden of Eden

 

And why should it matter to Me?

 

I’m alive

and have

My One Scraggly Apple

in My Back Yard

by The Sea

    once the earth was left

    behind

    over and over

    A-GAIN!

    (Now, where the H.E. Double-Hockey Sticks did that come from!?)
