Disconnections: September 2.18


The thickly leafy whatzzit tree

rises very pointedly

stretching most directionally

I wonder what I’m supposed to see.

Or maybe that’s a goose-type bill

and feathers made of chlorophyll

some arboreal whippoorwill

gowned in pinnate down and quill.

Or maybe…well, I don’t know how

I can see through its nom-de-bough

morphing sly from then to now

laughing at my furrowed brow.
