WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A READER

steps into a forest
and what can we infer from this

people need trees

another way to say mother
is when a white dog returning

home tells you eat your peas

you can listen for the end here
the camouflaged beginning

you can file your winter thoughts

into summer folders
and read them backwards

call this the news

country star caught
in country tornado

six kittens shot but
sheriff says no charges

not until they are named
