A Child Screams
A child screams like a screech of brakes.
Love me! he cries - I fell from a tree
and ran down a sandy lane that turned into a motorway.
I grabbed a car and began driving - it smashed into a
'But what tree?' I asked.
Its leaves and fruits were hidden -
if you don't count the ones in the branches
with lichen for hair.
i asked how they got here,
said I was seeking someone
whose name I couldn't remember.
It's you, someone said.
