Gone to Seed [Free Verse]

abandoned farmstead --
a blip in the flat-wide spaces
of the industrial-agro-manufactured prairie

the barn, dilapidated
the vehicles & implements, rusted

weeds growing from every crack

tall, blonde grass -
waving like ripe wheat -
stands in both front & back yards

something has died on the prairie
something is returning to dust & weed
something is lost
