Hunger and Diligence

The significance of trivial things…

America

Everything hinges
on the fence post,
cracked and frail,

that pulls
the barbed wire taut,
bars the white flock

from roaming
the valley
where hunger

and diligence
hide their curled fangs
in the darkness,

deep under
the sleeping pines.
