The First Will Be Last, a poem by Scott Hensley

The First Will Be Last
by Scott Hensley

The city's final statement is itself.
It cannot see, or conceive,
Of anything beyond its bounds.
And so, it's not yet thought of its finest possibility:
Its slow and sure descent
Toward the ground. 

Bio: Scott Hensley is an Indianapolis native and resident. He and his wife, Erica, own and operate a small farm on the city's southeast side.
