bonus post, tribute #10 (1.5-length) - nameless tree

along the fenceline, the particular basswood
with spacing of limbs easiest for climbing,

sitting-crotch to keep hidden in the leaves
or dangle legs from, writing, listening
to crickets, what moves at night

with 8 other leaning trees, it's been cut
"for safety/order" by uncle, cousin or father.

secret places can't be honored, protected
if no one speaks their value.
