I wonder if this sign
has outlived that which it
signifies, be it the store
or the promise

I have driven by
countless times
but cannot
recall the last
occasion on which
I turned into the lot to
do laundry or surf
consignments

I wonder how many
times I stopped…

a corner planting
has outgrown its post
reaches beyond the roofline
while the lower portions
are now exposed
as resources
shifted
to the parts
providing food
reaching more light
the lower limbs
were nearly
forgotten
apical
dominance
doesn’t always
bode well
to those
below
