ladder

Nor’east winds

harvest

cedar tops–

heaving,

thick-pitched and

hinged from

trunk to earth.

Humbled,

they give o’er.

ax and saws

hewing

form from branch

Hacking

limb and wit.

Hoisting

upwardly

a hole

into nor’east winds–

a hatch

made of cedar

holding

fast toward the

heavens…

or at least a

hired calling.
