She's cutting down autumn trees to make kindling for fuel for a fire,

For winter.

She'll be burning away,

Casting a shadow,

On herself.

She's growing down,

To nestle her bones.

She's carving her memory,

Hoping you'll need it,

Knowing a lack for want,

Her torture.

Ana is a sweet girl,

Bound in a bittersweet ground.

To know of the divine pleasures of rotten earth,

There'll be food for the carrion.

Soul-searching poetry / It has taken me many years, but I have come to believe in your line. "To know of the divine pleasures of rotten earth," and the people who populate it. To say the earth is a mystical "thing," and not rotten all you have to do is look around at the carnage and misery through so-called natural acts, or as we humans like to say, "Acts of God." Mankind is no better as we have tried, with no success, to tame Mother Earth. She is a witch. Welcome to AD.
