#2,670 Hedge

Mike Bell/ May 21, 2023/ www.mikebellpoems.com

It comes not too easily
now – out of easy flow
of steady word towers
from my hand – it slips
& fails to grip on vowel
sounding – I squared a
rough hedge today – it
sits outside my house –
now a tidied one verse
of right-alignments – a
compact [wrist] poem
from shuddered cuts –
my eye edited topiary
