and the trees keep singing

Aug 28, 2021

I see an old black man
walking slowly in a park
and think — YES
for you are used to forests
leaves green, bright, fresh
- no crispy edges -
and all the birds.
what a crazy thing it is
to be alive in this world -
all these preoccupations,
and the trees keep singing.
