growth not for sake of growth

Growth for the sake of growth
is the ideology of the cancer cell,

a loop around

Somehow I see myself in the stone post.
I like the way the hose loops around me.

home, handmade

I once lived near this wall, the wall of a home,
maybe handmade, in a temporary housing estate,
where people lived for maybe ten years, waiting
for their public housing unit. The estate is gone now,
and I do not know where my neighbors are.

did I?

Did I write a poem here? Maybe.
