Don Kingfisher Campbell – Brothers



thousands of blades

of grass stopped by

brick wall before sidewalk

are these thousands content

to grow upward four inches

toward the distant sun

do they secretly wish

they could uproot

walk over bricks

jump down onto sidewalk

enchanted as fantasia

march off into trouble

or have they been made wisely

weak in their wild rows

to touch each other’s shadows

they make me believe

they enjoy their evolutionary push

their struggle to become me



Don Kingfisher Campbell is published in New Verse News, Statement, Poetry Super Highway, Subtopian, and The Bicycle Review. He is an MFA candidate at Antioch University Los Angeles.
