Right please
through birds and bees
fire-sticks that
disappear through trees.

Left now,
let’s bow, let’s bow,
in furtive life
that’s a route to plough.

Straight ahead,
the leaves are dead
and the whitened tips
are off their head.

Back again
where we pretend
to consume all things
to mask the pain.
