Salmon Poetry

The Penmanship of Trees

To take these lines, however flimsy, 
hurl them at the white shrouded sky. 
Animal musk absent
from the pelts of boughs

the white
a gluten-
Nodules that line my throat

Enter the white
amnesiac hive,
not honeycomb- or yolk- 
yellow. Beads
swarm, then—shingling,
a migration of pine needles

To cool the number of damp beads in this morning’s wind, smell the leaves and woodstuff it edged around and bore into all night; no one saw. A stalk of tree branches rocks behind the porch.
