April 7

On the Street Where ...
by GC SMITH



Salt marsh
laps
near my
back door
it's lovely now
I don't know about
tomorrow

Global warming
it seems exacerbated
by stupid humans
(myself included)
may render
staying here
impossible

If I had me
half a brain
I'd sell to
a Yankee baby boomer,
but I don't,
so I'll remain
in place

'cause
I love
the street
where I live
and tidal waters
reaching toward
my back door.
