The Life of Wood

The Life of Wood

Ratchet backed easel,

Starter handled .

Made of school days

and homework.

Pre war spined

from machined

severed branches.

Bone squared,

the arithmetic of

woodwork classes.

Measured from the hip,

ornate walking stick

to step on ash, over

the parapet of art.

Cousin chair sits

in a silent corner

dumb as logarithms.
