The Unmanageable, A Cure

Above, on the balcony three wrought iron
chairs and Quincy Granite table.
Below, the road stalls enters a wood
ends at a litter filled rusted car.
There is a fussed over salt shaker
practical for both cravings
and it's carried with anatomical care.
The trees are mostly willow,
no one bothering to authenticate
their indigenous placement nor
the tiara in your beehive hair.
