Sunday, February 8


the trees gathered
in the city and resolved
to form a forest.

"here we will live"
they said,
"beside the swish
of rushing cars.

here our brown leaves
will be a blanket
for the concrete earth.
And birds will rest
on our naked branches.

Perhaps one day a lost
soul might come looking
for a blanket and a song.
