I graduated from the 60s
with a broken heart
for a world at war,

                    but I had known love
                    and lust and peace
                    were easy to come by—

and with my anger
dug postholes deep,
tamped railroad ties

to last a lifetime
holding barbed wire up
tuned guitar tight.

Rusty fences sag
and leak in places now,
braces lean with

the constant conflicts
beyond these pastures—
none so sure or secure.
