to go writing, to break up
the living below the lawn
a pitchfork is loose
troubling temptation of mud
if worms can live
worms in the earth of beneath
there are roots and writing is under
those easy walkways
through the back doors of coming in
we have ever been climbing
but from the landings, the fire escapes
the earth of writing is green
