Homeostasis

A Poem by Olivia R.H.
"

Wisconsin, my home, is like one body to me. This is my love, and my defense, of its beauty.

"
And have they seen the aster's face,
heard the bluestem bow-legs in the breeze?

And have they tracked the bicep of Devil's bluffs,
glossed ferns growing from rock knees?

And have they trilled with pasture red-wings,
breathed epidermis mint coating land's blood-loam?

If not, they're naught but unworthy body
to doctor judgment for my home.
