Michael Helsem

” . . . green”

how many years upon a terrace green
young Fate’s smile breaks through like ferrous green

my vintage Buick wears a “no-nukes” sticker
reliance more on coal; embarass green

cold minds procure from what may be, aspiring
dreams to wage real war in garish green

spirit born to know the vast inane
in durance hoar, in wings an heiress green

Graywyvern feels how brief his stand and scurry
fame’s golden nectar mixed (Why?) Paris green
