"...and the alleys smelled of earth"

ancient history ended only maybe
thirty years ago, to when the world
was built up, built out, and tech
progress speed created a new
generation of humans every ten
years/ so many in cities never
seen a cow/ newyorkers afraid
of driving through Vermont woods/
woods and farms I grew up in gone/
into strip malls condos seven eleven/
oh, put a word on it! nothing like when
I was three in Chicago, lilac lined drive
and the alleys smelled of earth
like the anthem of an age.
