Tuesday poem #64 : Deborah Meadows : Seven

1. An opener for a tough deal.

2. Down the rosy path, hand-in-hand, into the boxcar.

3. Read the hobo sign? Easy eats right here.

4. Operatic

5. clouds, sleeping, kills

6. the rare plants go into a database called the California
Natural Diversity Database (CNDDB)

7. Which begs the question, by whom?
