Pines

Pines

too close together

planted

needles stacked, matted, softened

old dead arms

stretching out

into long dead fingers

colonization

the triumph of the same

little else

grows

so linear

up-down

left-right

someone´s idea

of good order

bed of my childhood

needles matted

where I slept my Sundays

dreaming of friends

or of God

someone´s idea

of interesting.
