Did you hear they cut down our tree?
They dragged the kids out from the branches
then dismembered it limb by limb
until it stood empty like a hollow woman
then in a final swoop of mechanical justice
toppled her like a pair of heels on a night out.
I took a hike up the wilderness trail last week.
The white flowers were in full bloom;
I still can’t remember what you called them.
I saw a pair of cubs running through the trees.
They reminded me of Taylor and Tom
the way they roughhoused in the grass
like they didn’t even know we were watching.
They always came home with grass stains.
Do you see them anymore?
Anyway, sorry I haven’t been by in a while.
Doc told me there’s only a few months to go
and I took a trip to see your mom in Peru.
