Wedge Avenue Wars

Baby pine cones
army green
stony and sticky with
newness
make effective
grenades
against invading kids
from three streets
over
who have already
suffered the
first strike
of our devastating
low-rental wit
and now wait behind
tipped picnic tables
or a neighbour’s car
for the inevitable hail
of endless ice-cream
buckets of dog berry
