NaPoWriMo 25

Out here we can’t see
the forest for the trees for
they are approaching

faster and faster
and the path has not been set
too much undergrowth

overlaid with weeds
no one can separate from
desirable plants

now we’re really screwed
no way to tell if the roots
have been uprooted

because of the storm
or if in our infinite
wisdom we broke them

with our stupid will
