Coast to Coast

April 24, 2017

Our faces flush,

snapping beans

between sips of dandelion

on the stoop

under the peeling barn,

eyes on high alert

for the meteor shower,

the falling stars Pleadians

bored by outer space,

best to use our wishes

to grant survivors

sanctuary on our planet.

The last of the beans

flop into the pot,

wipe your hands

on the earth

as you pad off

towards the flickering

porch light,

just in time

for your nightly news
