    Mint countertops were a sign of the times;
    not that ours were - I don't remember
    Peppermint in the garden; strawberries
    and buttercups; a tall foxglove and ferns
    One neighbor had a nuke shelter built; duck
    and cover drills at Crown Hill school paled the
    innocent light of impressible youth
    An escape through the stinging nettles down
    to the shore helped shape an identity
    impervious to the daily fallout

    Buttercup Yellow

    Its not the yellow that helps gold
    Sparkle to delight.
    Its frailer, lovely to behold,
    A flower, living, bright.
