"Not My Place"


dense forest trees

              decrease daylight

circulating wind sways gaping limbs

      slopes steep in moss lushness

cloaks of maple bark

              rasps of human sound

flay ripened soil and flamboyant foliage

      a paste of infant vines seeps

like ember through my thick Keene soles

              and, Oh, the earth 

     with great dignity forgives
