emergent turmoil

however explicable
there are natural events
that seem to point beyond
themselves, as if
to make us question

…all that was left of trees
were pre-schooler sketches
[brown twisted lines
smudges where leaves had been]
and all that was left of green
were the splintering promises
in the neighbour’s shutters…

and the tall white birches
echoed my disbelief
etching their Ys on cobalt
