Marquette//Mt Pleasant

Abandon forests flourishing
Alive against the grain
Of an approaching grave site,
Walking along a trail path
Until it becomes concrete
As if engraving it to memory
Made it lifeless,
Projecting familiar topography maps
Over new sleeping arrangements
Redrawing landscapes
To fit the effigy of wishful thinking,
Is it betrayal
If an open field has become
A mountain range?
If where deer pranced before
Now are only seen dancing
Along roadside canals?

I'm a genderless poet currently living in Central Michigan where I attend college for Environmental Science and English. Nature's some cool shit, frisbee's a neat activity, fountain pens are best pens, Latakia for life, coffee and tea keep these gears turning.
