POEM -- "The Tree" by Thomas Herr

The Tree

By Thomas Herr

Congratulations you are free
The island has an elderly tree and is free
Is free

And the branches crack
And the bark peels

The sun shines in through the southern window
Brightening a musky morning
The day after -
Congratulations are due.

And so having won
You feel compelled to
Shout out to
The Mountaintop

And the tree becomes bare
Bark is dark and scarred

And there is no audience they are
Filling a netherworld between
Yesterday and reality

And the leaves fall and few return

And as the morning erection dies, as it does
You realize

It is that The Tree was.
