Curb Appeal

Daytime drunks flower on the pavement
Young couples who bloom only at night
Drive by
Sowing seeds with one dollar bills and
Palms full of change they
Fished out of their cup holders

Not too far away
A gardener in blue steps out of a
Ford Crown Victoria
To sprinkle poison
On the concrete
And set spikes
In the shady grass.
