close the camps

we set the zucchini (green and yellow)
carefully in the crates
so as to not scratch their soft surfaces
_______
standing at the intersection of jefferson and main
with posters that read
keep families together
close the camps
and the like

along with a good crowd for a small town
heartened by the supportive honks
and enduring the middle fingers and the fuck you, hippies
_______

how the blinky light
of a firefly
on the office room window
as seen from the office room
lures me to look up
to look out
at a whole twinkling swarm of them
drifting among the trees on the back hill
