Pine and Progress

Pine and Progress

some things stand out.

dead pine proud 
against 
a cloudy sky.


behind its ghostly 
presence

buildings stand 
where desert plants
struggled to grow.


one building seems
to take but little space;

it seems not much.

we think we 
do our best,

but we destroy 
and obliterate

everywhere we go.

look up at the 
dead tree.

how could we
have saved it?

how many buildings
will there be?
