Cracked Tree

Why again news, no more news

of divorce. I hadn’t heard of these two,

hadn’t dreamed they’d divorce.

 

A tree sways in the wind, but doesn’t

do as trees normally do, it cracks

like a painting

into pieces.

 

Why was there no woman of tears

and soft hands to go to this tree,

and massage it before it died?
