(In Memoria For 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 any 


                                                             road there


Then have a go at it, Bobby,

but let me caution you, 

trees are as unpredictable 

as any woman

on Earth.


I’ll be minding that.
