How do you call the urban fairies to visit?
Flowers for the Urban Fae
With what do you woo the urban fairies?
Would they prefer ragweed to roses?
Would they turn up their noses at
If you build them a fairy-door,
with what do you make it?
Would they prefer crumpled cigarette packs
to oakmoss and twigs?
Will they only reside in green cracks
Will they inhabit concrete and steel?
I think at the new moon,
I'll call for the fairies.
Chanting imaginary flowers
off condo walls.
I'll make a libation
of sweet wine and spices.
And I'll let you know
if they come at all.
