modesto ash

deeply cut 

mangled by the bastards 

we thought they killed you

in the fall 

oh magnificent ash of modesto

muscular stumps reaching for the wires 

and sky

deeply hurt

my man was blazing mad he

lashed out at the foreman 

all winter they 


in the spring

you showed new life and

there was peace
