ecology – a found poem

I visited a farm with a friend

consider a problem

how do we turn this creek into pasture

I put a pause on my emotional reaction

instead asked for a little time to walk the land

I came back to the house

they asked: Do you have a solution

I replied I had come to a positive negative

potentially a bigger perspective

negative because my answer

didn’t fulfill their specific request
