to the ground
there was only a darkness
- a time before poetry
When the tree fell in the forest
the squirrel ran away through the snow
with the crash
of the fall of the tree.
The crash of the tree, the fall of the tree,
was carried away
by the squirrel
who ran with disturbance of snow.
An airy vibration was in her fine ear;
of something amiss,
she had sensed.
