    He scrubs the front steps
    rakes in the fecal garbage
    the urban farmer


    (originally
    i put in $rich's haiku
    then i thought - alone)


    pulling backyard weeds
    plowing through broken glass
    the city tiller

    A new deadline looms
    His hue pushes him to strive
    Got to be the best

    mixing with the weeds
    brown seeds trying not to choke
    agriculture blues

    White collar blue tie
    dressing the part but can't climb
    a broken ladder

    he fixes the rungs
    his weight makes the steps crackle
    cautiously he treads

    homeless in door ways

    more jungle than farm

    Grass grows from the dirt
    Green poking through the concrete
    Stronger than cement

    Richer than coffee
    Grinds in the harvest of trash
    Nature claims its own

    Like the brown skinned man
    And that ace of spades black bro
    Strengthened by hardships

    Nourished by ashes
    Trampled under thoughtless feet
    They still find the sun

    Destee people, your stuff is awesome!
