April #7 Roll the Dice

The Son of the Age

It was as bright by the creek as a present,
and green as a pound of dollars at the store.
While the young white root descended time
–the years man owned, the years before—
a boy with his mother’s well
of county-born talking
learned the south side of language
from a merchandise wall.
