Split Oak for the Wood Stove

…where the wolves are killed off,

the foxes increase.      

 

Ten cord each

winter what

a waste of trees

cut split stacked

against the cold.

 

But you couldn’t stop

cranking up the fire.

 

Heavy steps behind me.

A stack of books wobbles.

No need to look around.
