Malpais Mind by Celia Turner

Poet Bio

No Superfund site,
raped by greed,
scorch of blight,
but water’s need

clear from given
name, people few,
too hard, been driven
away from view

of hard-cracked earth
to lands of green,
an easier birth.
In beauteous scene

rot can fester,
trees aplunder,
bodies will pester
till all asunder.

Take a place
so fine, so dear,
worry it to grace-
less mess in here.
