PrimeEvil

There are straight sequential breaks

in the sidewalk in front of my house,

smack

dab

where they are supposed to be.

This spring, weeds began an invasion:

dandelions

thistle

yarrow

crabgrass

and pigweed.

(In Guatelmala there are hidden Mayan cities

overcome and defeated by jungle).

The neighbor to the left of me said

my sidewalk weediness

disgraced the neighborhood,

so I paid a man to come fix it,

to restore the breaks to civility.

He used a sharp straight blade,

a v-shaped blade like an ice-breaker

and a weed eater

whose string spun around so fast

he accidently sliced a gash

in his blue jeans and the skin of his shin.

I didn't ask the man to come back.

All of the weeds started to grow again.

They grew so big

they caused spider web cracks

in the walk,

like star cracks in a car windshield

after being chipped by a piece of gravel.

My neighbor didn't say anything.

I didn't know, but wondered

if he had a heart attack and died

in the middle of the night,

when I was so deeply asleep

I didn't hear the ambulance take him away.

By fall

the weeds became outrageously vampant.

I thought the approaching winter ice might

do the trick,

but then,

what would the expanding ice

do to the cracks?
