the death of a kentucky coffee-tree :: jonathan greene

by on April 2, 2015

Fallen, the large tree
that owned this domain.
Its root ball ā€” flesh-colored
arthritic spikes
that had dug in for its
goodly time.

Seeing daylight
synonyms death.

Saplings that had stunted
in its shadow sing hallelujahs,
compete for new light.
