Poetry by Lee Potts : Roadside Picnic

Roadside Picnic

if the seeds
of glass sown
beside highways
once wrecks
are trucked away
weren’t so sharp (and if
they would actually grow)
a new weed with brittle
petals could
sprout and cup
honeyed wine
for us to share
and suddenly drunk
we would see
that all the glass
in the world will 
break back down
to sand again
