The Corner Market

The Corner Market
Poem by Willow Moon 8/16/2000

The corner market
The 7-11
The Texaco Star Mart
“Oh thank heaven”

Where these are now
There once stood
A great marsh land
A mystical wood

Sometime ago
I don’t quite remember when
We decided
We no longer needed them

The belching filth came
It ripped and tore
Bringing progress and commerce
To our door

Great heron flew
Perching upon roof
Hoping and thinking
We would reach enough

Coyote was there
Simply shaking his head
“What is it that possesses us
to flirt with death?”

Falcon left
Not looking back
As the marsh disappeared
In a single breath

I wander this land
Thinking of them

I move through my day
With fond memories of being
I pump my gas
And hope; believing…

Convenience stores
Are not so convenient
Any more
