GreenGreen fills my backyardIts iridescence reflects the inner meMy knees, my earsMy squinting eyesAll the lies my body has acquired.Barefoot summers blister feetBut waterless lawnsNeed no trimming, weeding, resoddingOr spoon feeding.Splendor in the artificial grass.Rick Stepp-Bolling
I connect the "lies" to the "artificial". Foreshadowing? Love it!
Yes, artificial knees, hearing aids, and glasses
A fresh April day, the breeze caresess like a crystal splash of water. The distant cascade of thousands of motors, lay silent. Being dumpster adjacent, I see it is very popular today. One bag at the top has green pull tabs. I offer a biodegradable prayer.
I love the line: "I offer a biodegradable/prayer."

Love the simplicity, Thomas
“Green”We have a small collection of garden hoses outside the house.Most are coiled and limber, latched on to water, dribbling down their chins.But not all.The older generation sunbathes in the back.They lay rigid and dark through stacked terra cotta, elbows dry and cracked.
