Plant The Tree – Unhinged Poem 2020TOO

jack-knife social,

a swallowing bird,

sea of simplicity,

seeing but not heard,

pioneered structure,

a foundation too weak,

you push,

you pull,

it fucked you,

behold the new tree,

wood to burn,

roots to eat,

a catastrophic brilliance,

brought to its feet,

a will never done,

a reflection never shone,

a war never won,

we don’t give,

but we take,

yet a sea we do not see,

for the sun is a sin,

and we are its sons…
