Poems: Unrequited Love

Unrequited Love

Down a soggy path
I pick my way
from tuft to tuft of ground.

Sneakers waterlogged
slippery across
trees lain over
puddles transformed into rivers
flowing around and underneath.

A thump
and a thump
flinging bark in the air

falling
like a new form of weather 
carved by a chainsaw
for the spring.

The woodpecker
tufted with red
pays no attention to me.
