Alas Cries the Woodpecker

Yonder discourse tempers near.
alight on amber waves
sticky sticking stricken mud
of earnest gold and redwood blood.
Alas cries the woodpecker
pecking jellied gems
hardened phlegm
spilled from dark crevasses
ridged ruffles
evergreen bark.
Alas cries the woodpecker.
digging piercing nails into weathered skin
cracked like desert ground
cries the woodpecker
shrieking shredding sobs
