Michael Adams – Roadside

Roadside

Between pavement and barbwire
Between cows and cars
Narrow strip
No cattle graze
tall grasses
short grasses
sage yucca
other plants whose names
I do not know
Roots deep
tenacious
Tough survivors
I kneel and give thanks

Michael Adams
December 21, 1990 Earth First!
