dawn redwood at sunset

blackened, wizened, deep-based thing

the late light scratches scarlet grooves

in to the trunk

and there are ancient reservoirs

of fingernails

and secret human stories

and the wind

is a blind carpenter

and the turning earth

an eraser

and the sky the skin of an eye

blinking away


and centuries

like grit
