• 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.
