Black Poplar

two flightless birds on a branch

a wood-saw working in my hand

if the branch is severed, we drown

I shrug off your efforts to stop me

Though it will bring both of us down

 

the branch is nearly sundered

I can hear it creak and groan

your hysteria makes me angry

Reduced to tears by it

Laughed and cried

 

Run it

Walked it

Chased it

Caught it

Wished I hadn’t bothered s...
