  • Hot slash, and brown dust
    September 2nd,Bingham, Maine
    Sappi clear cut and stumpage
    Cut, tossed and left to die

    I walk through a graveyard of gray, unseeing eyes
    Where vascular bundles once fed great limbs
    New shoots of aster, raspberry, osier dogwood,
    And alder
    Angle, catch, and break through the twisted carnage

    I step around them, cheering them on.
