IF GOOD FENCES


IF GOOD FENCES...

If good fences made for good neighbors
then our neighbors weren't particularly good
nor were we, as the ponies and deer
dove through sagging barbed wire strands
that moonlighted as æolian harps, at random.
Such sweet music, nature of tooth and claw
unfettered by fences, we were slackers all.
Nothing fenced us in, or kept us to ourselves.
