Breaking The Tenth, Mowing: "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house? not his ass, nor anything that is thy neighbor's."--Moses, Exodus 20:17: We stroll across the grass together, tied,/machine and I, together at the hip,/making the outward appearance that I'm in charge,'albeit of a friendly partnership.//My neighbor mows his lawn in comfort, kingly,/sitting, riding as I strain and sweat/and shove. "To get my exercise," I say,/then smile and covet, for the briefest moment,//my neighbor's ass, rather its location,/seated as it is upon the throne/of his machine, whirring beneath him gaily,/measuring the world to one trim height.
