Zen Master in Ecstasy

Zen Master in Ecstasy


Attacking from all directions,

from the woods and fields of Connecticut,

Buckhorn Plantain, Carolina Geranium,

Bluegrass, Backyard Grass, Goosegrass, Foxtail Grass,

Chickweed, Ground Ivy,

Carpet Weed, Horsenettle,

Hambit, Lambsquarters,

Mushrooms, and Nutsedge,

Ragweed, Sorrel, Speedwell, Splurge.

What glories

spread upon our green suburban lawns!

Violets, Star-of-Bethlehem!


-Dick Allen
