For Us, The Trees

if you seize the trees that grow the children that climb

the trees of mourning trees that dove their tales

to grim and frail of trees that cleave us into riftwood

ring and bark like trees full of cats that firemen must ax

and burn to become books that wax in our memory

if you leave us cede us nursery of Christmas

clones treed by doubt beetles changing climate into treehow

if, if, ips confusus house of now slash reigns

when the forest is clear over there will you pine

for trees you cannot see
