tree hair

when i returned to the gnarled branches

day after day

wearing smooth that one patch of

rough bark

sitting silently underneath

your outstretched boughs

bowing deeply below the

tender blue sky –

i never imagined screeching teeth

sinking into your flesh, ripping you apart

they took you from me

& i am sad for that.
