Will County

supermarket suburbs

spaced

along highway

bleeding

movie theaters

pizzerias

interrupt

landscape

feeling

 

gas station prairie

Blame the rails

Blame the interstate

Blame the goddamn Yuppie migration

 

global suburbanizing

 

 

corn

soy

fields destroyed

now

strip malls

by the hand fulls

 

 

 

Will County

urban overspill

forty fourth in the nation

Will County

Will never be

home to me
