growth

beyond the chain-link fence
alternated ornamental evergreens
and fire bushes blaze
 a barrier to foreign ground
 surround a smooth, black lot
of high-financed cars
   in pristine, seasonal shades
made with pride
       in germany,
         japan,
          switzerland
while on this side,
      a ‘58 chevy flatbed stands
rusted and forgotten
   by all except lilac bushes, bluegrass,
  and blackberry strands
snaked through the grill
      in a testament to growth.
