Speed Demons

Speed Demons

In our frantic dash through life,
we’ve devised

microwave ovens,
self-checkout lanes,
next day delivery,
and
blazing gigahertz.

Thank God for

slow summer days

that draw sweet corn seed seven feet toward heaven,
lingering kisses in the night,
and
the nine loving months that mother and child
are one.
