The Willow Tree Permanently Trapped Near the Lake

My bark is made

of pain relief, but

my pain sees no relief.

I have shelter,

but no protection,

like a window screen

being used as an umbrella.

I am the willow tree,

standing in solitude

by the lake. I am

covered in string,

exposing my

naked body to

the harshness

of the Earth,

who does not

handle me carefully,

either, who rips me

whichever way she

wants, making

me dance.

I am a puppet

stuck by the lake,

my roots forcibly

deep in the soil.

I am here until

death, as a slave

of the wind.

I dance.
