Infestation by Laurinda Lind

Adirondack lakes
glitter in her gut

black bears yawn
like increase

so build a hundred
condos up the tailbone

of the ancient wife, hell
build a thousand

steeper views
heighten us all

& should her sorrow
soak down to stone

don’t forget
to get a chit

& wangle
water rights
