Effects of Beautiful Death

Mangelwurzel’s dark perfume escapes
the hedge’s pulse, earth’s groin
feeds least bloody of the beets to
livestock from winter perfect palms.

Across the field, a golden maple bonsais
the dead center of a sawed-off tree,
denies its peril, forgets its crimson
tips, its wetted cardboard brown
and supple twigs turned brittle bone.
