How must it be --
for countless springtime songs
to be tossed by the boisterous surge?

Then, summer days,
baked in the dappled sun,
freeway to ants and squirrels?

Winters, be-iced, benumbed,
waiting once more for spring?

And now,
stuck in a concrete median strip on Wilshire Blvd,
tickled by junk food plastic wrap,
cell phone soliloquies,
and the sometime shade of a sapling tree…

Ah, well,
Its sturdy, patient heart
shares grey green dreams
beneath a stream of cars

-- a gift from Alice, April 2004
