Orange Tree Bark

Orange Tree Bark

exotic trees on bare rock
leftovers from before

dinosaur comet damage
(huge shock many fires)

when the earth rose
high and fell back

starting a global winter
(maybe a hundred years)


arbutus trees survived
on the north american
west coast on rocks
on hills and mountains

long before our time
(we've been here 
for such a brief time)


we never saw the world
that was when the
dinosaur asteroid hit

orange bark arbutus trees 
look like something

from another world
as they certainly were
(a dinosaur world)
