Of Trees and the Forest

Don’t chase
falling leaves
into screaming traffic

What are you, a child
(of God or the world)

There are surer suns
and shining signs
to rest on your head
as crumbs and crowns

and if a frog had wings
it wouldn’t land on its ass
every time it jumped

All the wisdom from our fathers

still drinking from plastic bottles
while we’re walking in the rain
