Mossy Tree no. 12

honestly there were more
trees on the edge of the woods

not 12 (but thousands)
maybe many more

we spiral through space
orbiting a black hole

what does our black hole orbit
(i'd like to wish you sunny days
but everything is getting hotter)

they say to look at moss on trees
to find your way when lost
north should be mossiest they say

except that on a tree like this
its very mossy everywhere

i want to show you good news
but we might be extinct
before there is a good news day

things heat up (look for thick moss)
the thickest side should be north 
(the direction you should go)

until newly-thawed permafrost
is all around you (mud)
