greenpoem #4

a friend tells of her sister who
when very small recited a
catechism with the line “god is
the supreme being who rules
heaven and earth”– for years she
thought “supreme being” was a
“string bean” entrusted with this
formidable job it seems to me
we could do worse a string bean
is upright reliable you can count
on a string bean it is humble
unpretentius respected and
right now green is a popular
even powerful symbol we
need all the green we can get
