Big Men Wail Hammers

Here are four of the five posters (fifth one here) created by Leo Boyd to accompany a poem by Nathaniel McAuley for CNB15:

A City-wide Initiative
for the Production
of Lemons

Instead,
the city plants
for lemons.

Big men wail hammers
parting the streets
in search of earth

seeds grow in
the cupped hands
of patient children

and shoot
from inside pockets
out of sleeves and collars.

Every hole in the wall
is over-packed
with knots of root.

Within the year
the luminescent
cache of fruit

is promised
to be vast enough
to displace night.
