"Tiny curtains open and we hear the tiny clap of little hands
A tiny man would tell a little joke and get a tiny laugh from all the folks"

Missed the Boat - Modest Mouse

the shadows of the tree’s hands
stretch out across the blazing sand.
blocking the sunlight
from my face
and my cheerful attitude

hiking through
this desert now
I have often
wondered how
all life here
does not burn away.

this ancient tree,
a shriveled oak,
is all that’s left
of an ocean of trees.

I stand in a graveyard of leaves.
