Seduced 

I was the seedling  

tendered 

to shoulder the slime 

earth in revolt  

facing slaughter 

I, the box elder furrowed  

nether 

I, the ash-leafed lengthened 

shadows. 

 

Foresworn 

I matched the weed 

poisoned 

to fashion convenience 

humanity in denial 

facing extinction 

I, the ash-borer scrabbled 

prudence 

I, the invasive species multiplied 

transient. 

 

Tamed 

I am the compost 

watered 

to redeem weeping 

cohorts in infamy 

facing recompense 

I, the unwonted crop aborting 

justice 

I, the fugitive forest cremating 

suspicions.
