yellow star

14 May
the new yellow sun swelled day
all the flowers and the grass
the forest black with long old roots
hide leaf from the sun swelled say
the trees with gnarled bark and sigh
with thick branches push the sky
so the small red flowers die
the mouths of the forest eat
killing them flesh bone and blood
yellow star full moon the mud
