Gentrification by Lyn Patterson

You curse vacation rain

which cultivates

flavors of tropical fruits

you buy from Whole Foods,

in neighborhoods and on islands

that you never belonged to you.

Lyn Patterson is a deeply invigorated poet who delves into themes of self-love, identity, overcoming trauma, accepting the "inner wild" and intuition. She is currently travelling the world, teaching online classes to aspiring teachers
