Dying for Christmas

The tree we cut
and carried
into our home

the one
we shackled
then
trimmed

sang to
then
toasted

now lays
in the gutter

her
hooks
and tinsel
riffling on the wind

there is no place
quite like the other

each valley
each plain
each mountain
each plateau

each
with its own
land forms
life forms
weather
and light

encased in a shared
halo of air

we are binding this earth in asphalt.

binding
and branding
we block the night sky
with our signs.

from
above
we look
like fire

i am in part

soil, coyote
and tree.

what you do to this world
you do to me.

soon
no amount
of insecticide
will help

I am pleased to announce Mr. Hussein has agreed to comprehensive oversight by the United Nations and disarmament (if needed). This will allow us to to focus on addressing terror worldwide.   It can also move us closer to enduring positive peace.

the more i am
with nature –

this patch of earth
it is as good as any-
the day touches all
