Today's poem is by Zach Savich

the landscape

the landscape isn't over

they put seeds in the walls
of the disintegrating home

it has made a field worth looking for

planks held by shaped wire
spent mill
brickwork undeniably skilled
even in struts and frames no one could have seen

it is February
or July

all you can predict about a year from now
the date
