Poem: Flowering Trees

Standing sentry beside the unblemished avenues of the upper-class fortresses which line

Beverly Hills and Bel-Air and all the other places where winners live and those who

Have not

Discovered the magic formula

May not reside,

The lilacs and myrtles and jacarandi

Burst forth

Insistently. Proudly. Defiantly.

Like hundreds of gravity-defying breasts, announcing to the world that

They shall live before they die.
