Trees of Light
A porous tunnel of trees
makes the light lighter than the butterflies.
It seeps to reach me,
with all my shadows getting high
on dopamine and doom on a weekday.
You can't stop a tree from dancing.
a viscous life
fixated to rhizome, screens the
sun, and kisses infinite over-world
to make rains for my sex-starved deserts.
I smell death. I see deathless.
I hear trees talking about the Buddhas
we all were once.
