Poetic Development: Going Down

Poetic Development Banner

Going Down

It is leaning….M’aaaammmmmm, not
Falllinnggg down
Said the man from DEP.
She looked at the leaning linden tree with fresh eyes
eyes for continued growth
upward movement
pROGRESS
But still she saw the tree falling
not leaning
and
across the street,
the amused men on the stoop
bet on its route to the pavement.
