Storm Drain (Repost from July 2022)

There is a rainforest

in the storm drain.

Ferns burst from the concrete walls

and if I kneel close

I can hear birds whistling 

in the darkness, but they stay

tucked behind the bars and roadway.

The planet life never sneaks up

into the sunlight.

Maybe, because they know

who the true monsters are.
