Timber
(In memoria to Bobby Keech)

Can you lay a big tree down, Bobby?

Hell yes, and it’ll be as gently 

felled as any babe ever laid to cradle.

Can you make it 

fall exactly so, Bobby?

You can set your compass to it, friend. 

It’ll fall 

as 
  								straight
              									as any 
                        			country 
                                   			road there
 be.

Then have a go at it, Bobby,
but let me caution you, 

trees are as unpredictable 
as any woman on Earth.

Yeah. I’ll be minding that.
