Deathw7sh II

Untread roads of roots
Where the weight of the bark
Makes the tree trunks bow

Lashed up leaves
Tied to never fall

Branches picked apart
Yet there’s no autumn

This copse costs lots
To keep protected

Every little stem
To keep tied and connected


Red dead diamonds
In the forest of forever fall


By the twine that binds
Their veins still to twigs

Long after they’re dead
They’re admired and

These leaves
Have no more left
To weep

Hot bloody cuts
Of precious stone
Sticks from sticks

Rock and wood
Had always wished they could
Form a strength any like this

Rubber twine’s
Time to shine
As xylem bonds bark
And stones so fine

Stiff leaves
Soft trees
Bloody diamonds
And birch kiss

Their deathwish
Immortalized as this
