A the Tree, Tree
is the stalk
rigid, and the steel
flesh, and the red burning
mouth, throat,
heaving stomach,
sumac and briar; that
is better.
That's how it knows you -
- the fist
pointed finger:
is bone, is
blood, em-
The stalk
nerveroots the
follicles worldturn
turn on the
lightsick chlorophyll.
The fist,
turned pointed finger,
the arm extended lights
turgid steel
skyward. Matchstick girl
I know; am; am against you.
