Minding the Garden

      I find when I tend not
to my mind
It grows unruly
with thorn-tangled branches
      I must ceaselessly uproot
sprouts of anger
seedlings of negativity
lest the whole garden
within my skull
be choked and strangled
by the virulent weeds
of black apathy
whose perennial bloom is Death
