3 Word Lines and at least one question Poem: First Draft

“I love you,”
answers the physicist at sundown near the edge of the back yard in spring.

Tell me, why
is grass greener
twenty steps beyond
our lawn across
the thicket fence?

Let’s see: Yes,

You look down
at our lawn
and see bare
spots of earth.

Yes, let’s see:

You look over
there and see
grass blades tall.

In short, you
see the forest
over there, dear,
and here see
only sparse trees.

In fact, grass
is always greener
where you can’t
see raw earth.

Is it not?
