Gentrification

My dog digs
trying to set down
roots
she digs up glass
instead

This was an empty lot
for years.

In the short-off
distance, a neighbor
sings that she is a “poor
wayfaring stranger.”

She’s digging in, too.
Her roof is a week old.
brand new.

She ain’t going nowhere.
Not anytime soon.
