earth note 87

two-tone duplex
half brown shingle half green vinyl
two families an impossible compromise
‘cept for a chimney shared
reluctant at that
walls between barrier perception
spiteful partition
cattle pen imagination
street subversion
brewing in the hillside
a cobbled together disunity
cracks with evidence
but not so obvious
rules imposed
imposition final
