Speed Demons

 Speed Demons
In our frantic dash through life,
we’ve devised

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

Thank God for

the 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.
