done

i think i’ve finally dug
my last post-hole
the rest now will be
a steady, deliberate
mixing of cement

slowly setting the posts erect
heavy staple, and wire
barbed; what i’d set
in years gone now
acres and rows

to keep the wild-things out
never a truly infallible
,as these things are
for only a thimbleful of determination
the spaces between could be made a window
.dying

is a young man’s game
and i’m done
letting
