Running Poem #2

I’m very sorry.

———

The dreaming tree is dying

Leaves shrivelled brown

before spring unfurled them

Skeletal, dessicated

in summer’s lascivious swell

Does it starve from a lack of believing?

Yours

Mine

That other guy’s

Did the world kill it

or did we

I move past

Hoping I can still achieve

what I want

I need

I imagine

but the dreaming tree

is dying
