FRESH POEM

can't keep grass down

pushes up
through seams
of concrete driveway
through cracks
of ever buckling
tectonic plates

can't keep
conversation above
din of night insects
throb in wall
of trees encircling mall
pressing in

can't help
but wonder when
we will be shaken
off her back
cement scabs
and all

Thanks Pat - I'm tweaking still since I wrote it just before posting - any suggestions are welcome.
