Burning Bush 2020a1

it pays to be careful 
when you hear voices

from burning bushes.

sadly our sanity is at best
a tenuous situation.

we make it all up.


burning bush might be
an invasive plant,

depending on where
you choose to live.


the (yellow) seeds
will sprout and spread.

like dirty little lies
people sometimes tell.


belonging nowhere
near our yard,

it must be dug out
and removed

no matter how bright
those yellow berries,
or entertaining the lies.
