The Green Tree

Fairy tales all had teeth in the beginning.

In the darkened wood

The green tree waits alone

The fire is looming

Near to her home

Clear as woman’s tears

Before they fall to the mud

Deep, raw and red

As woman’s blood

Blue is the sky

Before the heavens fall

Blackened roots

Strangle them all

Choke on your words

Like ashes on the tongue

Look to another

The green tree is done
