under a fruitless tree, you
…..consider

…..the crackle
overhead

…..transmission
lines strung
with intermittent
…..messages –

short thoughts
…..expiring
with the dying
whine of cicadas

the grass quivers,
stomach all tied up
…..in knots

a naturally-occurring
…..electro-
magnetic field

palms firmly
grounded
…..against the earth
