          Greener skies
          By Suzanne Westhaver

          These parasites,
          They attack the root,
          Killing from the bottom until the surface,
          Deprived,
          Becomes desolate--unyielding.

          Ungrounded,
          Sustenance cannot be found.

          I think of you,
          Stretched out
          On the hood
          As stars shoot across the Haitian sky.

          And,
          Wonder what nourishment failed to reach you?
