Humans Defeat Nature

Like Humans Do

Dip the trees
like candle wicks
into molten skies
until dripping glass is fired
and frozen shapes arise.

Choir's low. slow, dire portent
from woody elder's breasts and thighs
grown innocent of movement
 when weight and wind collide.

A sense of nameless dread pervades,
 other species succumb to fear;
 explosions approach and signify
what cannot be realized:
 nature's dropped the reins.
