Trees Are Not a Metaphor


The woods are not a metaphor for any human thing.
Cities are a metaphor for trees.
We have tried to recreate
roots, shelter, aspiration,
the nourishment we once plucked from her hand,

and all our building yet embodies
a pale part of what grows on,
out there,
beyond.

Woods hold
cathedrals,
gardens,
sculpture,
music,
dance
all engineering and

more reality than we've grown into yet.
