This city garden
Where street lamps grow
Irrigated by gutters
Cars ants; busses beetles; helicopters dragonflies, and, underground trains worms below
Street lined signs and neon lights - flowers by day or night
Power pole and wire be stick and vine
The odd cell tower the sunflower
Streets and avenues a gardener’s path
Fenced in by a map
