earth tones

image via magpie tales





i’m uncomfortable
around nattering restlessness
deafened
by the frenetic buzz 

of earth movers
and universe shakers


i do not blend well into
the mandatory neon light
and i prefer the robust charm
of root vegetables
over clever concoctions whipped up
by chemists in chefs clothing



i am a child
of the green gold sod
a product of  

a washerwoman’s holiday
i understand the persistence of need
i believe in the dedication of want
