earth note 371

hollywood, florida

a woodpecker
in the tropics
sifting through
the fronds
fire ants
run for cover
     there will come a time
     when peace will prevail

a drawbridge creaks
another sequence
just after the bicycles
make their way

is it really ocean sand
or just an imposter
to these parts
     does it really matter
     will the pelicans complain

will it keep the tourists away
