from PTSD: south beach

i have listened
i have listened
to the fruit-market women squeeze limes
chew the purpleblack figs
give cheap
too much
too muchmuch you price big
they fist the air
they are proud of their
baskets
brimming with lettuce heads
madcapped carrots
and the dirtdug beets still crusted with earth
now in new countries
food is plentiful
roads trundle into other towns
where mules no longer bring home
children
without limbs
