Urban Perambulation

sidewalks stretch between Teslas and fir trees 

where paved-over roots expand and erupt, 

rippling moss-stippled cement into 

uneven hills and valleys

tiny earthquakes carve gnomish mountains 

out of pocked pavement

they wild the cityscape                                                   

where wee fissures appear,

slender as elf ears,

beneath stumbling feet

and unset the concrete mind

along crayoned faultlines   

to release rivulets, spritely streams, of spring-fed dreams
