feeling built into

any human being native to a city

transported to the same space

fifty years before

would be lost

 

an alien world where if they’d stay

they’d never be themselves

 

could it be that structures

influence thoughts

that brick  and mortar

project emotions independent

of any presence

 

that feeling is built

into creation

Wildwood Limerick

The Wildwoods are just like South Philly-

Except for the fact that they’re pretty,

But it’s the people

Who, like a steeple

Crown the foundation of a city.

Mother Earth Haiku

broken vines browning

along the cracked red brick wall

forgive us Mother
