bones and boards
marrow and heartwood

what would become
of all this wood?

could all this
be put back together

a great big
puzzle, put it
together again
and bam,
the pacific northwest
is whole again

no more holes
in the forests
unseen from highways
but visible as sores
from the skyways
between here
and there

when they
chase me out
of the yard
i’d nearly
a 70 foot cedar

its fragrance
still with me
in my nose and
my bones
in my heartwood

Reach out and touch someone....
