to poet the word

to stay clear the shrub,

to risk not the fire,

to hold fast the salt-plain,

to pray out the flood.


to hew down the hillside,

to un-see the vision,

to forego the silence,

to un-hear the word.


to hunker the moment,

to profit the tyrant,

to loyal a dynast,

to return the dream.


to lower from round-top,

to tree by the water,

to root deep in giving,

to drink in the world.



Jeremiah 17:5-8


for one doubting the use of shrubs, shade,
and things growing green.
