Invasive Species

A beach cottage, a hike up and
down the dune to the Big Lake,
with dune grass, red and white
pines, a pond, a water fall and a
silent pump in the pond to keep
the water moving and the gold
fish flipping fins and every day,
including today, Memorial Day
and every other holiday, engines
running, gas fumes rising, alien
grass growing and being cut so
that suburbia can reign here
where we have our own brand
of invasive species — neighbors.
