let them ring!

in the back sheds /of our suburbs

healing is happening-among men
neglected/with hobbies
assembling tiny replicants
boys bicycles hung from ceilings
like Mussolini and his mistress
here is the altar of patriachs-
sanctuary for seniors
apprentice laboratory for adolescent secrets
in these thin walls a womb
to make and unmake a thousand inventions
construct models of authenticated universes
inside here you can hear the mind of man
ancient as cave/new as now
continuing a Great Chain of Being
to emerge with an AHA! or EUREKA!
among the tools for gardens derelict
sheds are our art of darkness

In the Garden of Gethsemene
in the Garden of Eden
in the Winter Gardens
Green Shoots are rising!
Under cover ,Spring Emergent
sending green spies out on limbs
to see what view birds nests
Zen stone gardens /austere as debt
Meditate on snow and ice
Here,in green,we await the rain
and Spring!
