Across the Green

Oh!
I’m smelling
green again
Tell me,
what to do

Personal reflections
Responses
Hissing
like a cat

Jealousy
Avarice
Hidden
In chide

How Dare I
speak
How Dare I
sing
How Dare I
spread
all
of
that
red

Upon your dress of green
It makes you
look
like
mud

Is it
that fear
of separation again?
I cannot
Comprehend

This insane,
inane
lust for green.

Group-think
Money
Popularity
Morgue

Just get up
and
dance
and
giggle
and
play

Be Holy.
Who you are.

Inhale
and
Stretch
and
Walk
And
Breathe

Across the Green.
