Becoming Bark

Outstretched arms
Swaying
Waving her in

Gnarly fingers 
Rapacious
Rooting her in 

Molten scales  
Crawling up her limbs
Conquering her body

Among falling leaves
She remains. 

Here today, gone tomorrow

Today
Motorway
To nowhere
But darkness,

Delicate arched foot
Glued
To the pedal

Landscape
Racing past
Today
Gone
Tomorrow
Almost here

A click of the fingers
A ring of smoke
A road
A tunnel

Delicate arched foot
Grey
Thumb tied up
Today
Gone
Tomorrow
Unborn

Unanswered

They dig right under where it is
Where it should be
Where you point  
A molten finger,
Underneath
That stone angel.
This is where she is,
Was. Her eternal residence
Below moody skies
Avalanches
Of unanswered questions
Rage 
Tears.
They dig, but she’s not there
Revolving blue lights
Revealing confusion,
Panic
Consternation.
She’s gone they say,
She’s gone you can see
A box empty
Of all that was left
Proof
Reality
Tragedy.
She’s gone and with it
The murmured claims
Of your insanity.
And  
You will never know.
