Growing Green

Growing Green

written by: Carrie Magness Radna



Why are you so quiet?
There are many kinds of love
waiting to be yours
if you need it

Head’s not nearly empty
like the last time
you tried to think
of something bigger
than yourself—

The satin seat of desire
rises up as I smell green
outside the car window.

Summertime is in full bloom
(or was it fertilizer?)
or actual grass growing
in the park?

My heart is still racing
from several sensations.
Something good
is growing fast—
