the tree fell for no reason at all
it did it just said “goodbye”
and dropped over dead
with a thump as I looked on
and shuddered with dread.
a group of three lightning bugs
convened last night.
how do I know?
they lightning-ed (no thunder)
(?) ever notice how tombstones’
birds sit (thereupon) perched,
tails extending over polished edge
—so innocuous, until down the sides slides the bird
shit, i’ve noticed (this repeatedly) that tombstones are
manure magnets for the foul
of fowl and I do think they do
do it intentionally.
