    • Drifting Wood

    Hungry chainsaw eyes


    Forgotten

    Yesterday's forest

    Once you stood

    Groundgripping tall

    Reduced,

    After the fall

    Stripped, river tumbled,

    Hardened, carved, starved

    Decomposed

    Driftwood.

    Your freshwater journey

    Drifting, unnoticed

    Passing by

    Lazy opportunistic

    Chainsaw eyes.

    Your journey ends

    On swallowing sandbanks

    And

    Even laying down

    In this makeshift state

    Still

    A towering statue

    This resting windbreak

    You create.
