listen to the breathing of the trees

the grand oaks, white oaks and Eastern black oaks

slowly decaying

slowly inhaling


the bearers of life

the progeny of Osiris slowly

asphyxiating by the

smothering of jealous clouds

full of hot gas


in this forest fractals

fall apart, a screaming silence

so loud it devours one whole

in this forest things

sink in earth


bury in water.
