Cypresses V

You are still here.

The council have stayed

The execution

For now.

Poor roots

Have shot

Too far, into

The sewage pipes

Of your owners’

Land.

 

The news

Is bleak too

In Belgium

And Nigeria

America as usual

It starts again

Ukraine, Sydney…

I think of my trees

Outliving all that

Many
