Two Tall Trees
There’s a window in the bathroom and if you stand at the bottom of the stairs you can see 2 tall trees through it.
And if you walk 2 steps up you can see the leaves on the 2 tall trees through the window in the bathroom.
And at 9 and something in any given June you can see the sun setting through the leaves on the 2 tall trees through the window in the bathroom.
I don’t know what will be of me, or what will be of you, or of the poor bees.
But I think perhaps, when enough years have passed, when my mind starts putting out its own flames and and becomes slow burning wood.
I’ll close my eyes and see,
The sun setting through the leaves, on the 2 tall trees, you can see through the window in the bathroom.
