County Route 20


This porch is the yellow
of words, one green story
after another. Then you.

Texas neighbor Trump supporter
nothing on this earth is simple.
He plants lilacs.

Hairdresser mother with her children live
behind the post office.
She reads Eudora Welty.

Post Office the only public space.
We meet there every day.
Doesn’t matter about letters.

This summer begins.
We are all of us here.
What will grow besides asparagus?
