Lament For The Cypress - by Dawn M. Wittke

 

Lament For The Cypress

Her thousand year old tears streak

a lyrical slide on their race down

move slow like lava

Gravity confused by the strength at which she holds it

Let us harvest this wealth—thousand year old cypress. Our children, and their children,

and their children’s children will never see the like of them again. Not a worry!

We can gather wealth! We can become rich! And what do they want of the swamp anyway? We will give them a cage, in a city, where they never have to worry about this heat again.
