Untitled 71

The clinging skin of hunting dogs
As they trespass on the neighborhood
Keep me humble.
Food is an escape artist,
so I have built a gold vault
To secure it while I doze recklessly.
Not everyone has the materials
to do this.
It took me years.
Not everyone has the time.
Some homes shrink to caskets.
Some nations sink to graves.

The faces of the unfortunate
become corn seed.
