Cutting Grass

following the rotation
of the blade
bound to the rhythm
of routine about
my route
over the lush
green palate on which
I sketch interlocking loops
curvilinear arcs in
overlapping designs
freely as impulse
dictates without concern
for critical review
of choices
made on capricious whim
swinging behind
the will of a machine
yielding to its commands
slowing for curves
in case something
crosses the path
to challenge the
sport for a ride
