More Than Flesh

stock-photo-light-mediation-on-water-299497922Tripping over protruding root

Mother’s passive aggressive revenge

Broken branches like compound fractures

The hurricanes scream with

Cracking evergreens, aspens

Creasing trees and cannon balling ship masts

Falling soldiers, stiff with rigor mortis

Sabers of lightning

And sparking gunfire

Kamikaze forestry

Dry cracking birches

Like snapping muzzle fire

Squatting in the green

Burning down to the filter

Deep in meditation

What does it mean

To penetrate deeper than flesh;

To be further connected with the soul

Ram Dass,

You hit the flint

But they’re the ones

To burn down the town
