Fresh Mint

Skip the previous sentence

Coffee ground repentance

Transport the authority

You have over a single commodity

The mint leaves grow fresh on the south

Side of town

Across from the ethanol plant

Away from the people

But in the middle of the day

As the frosts of winter

Are far melted away

Fresh mint can be inhaled deeply

Pulled out and steeped

This mint has a way of making the air fresh

A cross between a milky frothy richness and mint

Fresh mint will always remind me of my home

At least the better days

The days when opportunity overshadowed doubt

The fresh mint days of my life
