Oak Tree Poem

Necessary murder
by Joanne Faries

ninety-two feet tall

massive oak tree

shed gnarled limbs

huge suicidal branches


through the roof

family reclined on the couch

clicked between football

and Discovery

reality lumberjack show

oak shadow loomed

until slain by an arborist

firewood stacked

by back door
