willows weeping

with my eyes feeding

their sap,

I run, run away


where sulphur shower

in the spring

soaks my whims,

autumn building a bed

where I can rest my head

I roll in decay,

the spirits say,

a beginning

perpetuating in a

solemn ending

the godly pines

preaching, their hearts cold,

their cones so terribly cunning;

in no time

I call myself a hostage.
