where the patchwork houses kiss eden's edge
indistinguishably pavement turns to mere accumulations of meanderings
hold it back! the white fences spring to
position lances drawn
beyond the sidewalk rages the infinite
entropy of eternal cosmic battles
lapping frothily at the shores of the squarely trimmed lawn
but each green blade valiantly defends
home and homemakers
for permanence lives only in child's memory of scorning the demons at the gate
the safe oasis bounded by pickets and
fortified by certain love
a besieged fortress triumphs over impending irrationality
forever disintegrating crumbling withering to less than dust,
but stem the tide
for tendrils of panic encroach not past these postcard picturesque hedges.
this is home
this is home
this is.
