Growing a poet in Detroit

forest trails
are train tracks
trees are endless
puffing chimneys
factories scrabbling
at the sky all round the house

grass long-paved over
whispered history
concrete play yard
and room for one more
broke-down don’t-run car

J. LEWIS FLEMING is a writer, poet, once and future editor, and father. All of these cause him more than a little frustration, and enough joy that he occasionally is overwhelmed by it all. He has been fortunate enough to have two titles of poetry, The Bones of Saints Under Glass and Shades of Green, published by Alternating Current.
