"You can't have your cake..." by Joe DiMino

The night has its stars
for wandering,
into the dark of schemes;
and the day
its focused light
while I, as Poe, keep wondering?
dreams within dreams….
I tend to my garden…
tucking seeds
with lullabies;
imagining shoots,
rising and green;
with the sunniest
a garden has
ever seen;
(we are
all planters
with hearts;
some addicted to soil
while others
to other parts,
of the many, seasoned things
giving height and breadth
to a city…)
and then comes
a victory
of joy and pity:
my mouth watering
while little stomach
for the process
of consuming….
