Blood Redwoods

Clear-Cutting without New Growth
JCD Kerwin

Seems like I’m drafting up my future
before I’m taking three steps
in the present.
I’m signing contracts with
invisible ink and
when I look behind, I see
10,000 acres of land acquisitions
I never knew
I traded freedom for.
Yet,
thinking I am somehow special
just makes my sight foggy;
looking at those who really matter
is like watching leaves
in acid rain puddles.
Didn’t know I could cut
the fragile dreams they have
with mine…

Like a logger in a redwood grove.
