In a Sweat

I am removing trees.
Over and over I go
my whole body in a sweat

Day and night
icons of trees
so very many of them —
I am logger, drone operater
wack wack wack

Sometimes in a calm moment
the laptop is not
is not there.
I haven’t slept enough
to have a dream.

Day and night
I am logger drone warrior
wack wack wack
