trees in the time of chainsaw

4 Jun

the red x’s on trees bring yellow hard hats in June.
“and the craftsman revs his idol engine.”
but dreadlocks still walk this earth and
i feel their pause and ponder;
staring up at the amputation
as matted coils are set free from under a rastacap
and roots and river flow to the sound of vrooooom.

    Technology has advanced to the point that you can get a tune out of the average chainsaw these days.

      the sputtering of model-t fords was quite the funk or at least it looks and sounds that way on old movies. I think it’s called sputtering, ya know, that burping and slide step.
