Half man, half tree:
Describe limbs with leaves (“no, not like Pinocchio”).
And when the reader reads, looks only at
One part: wood
(but not sees)
“We are men, not carved wood”
– Sukoshiyama, 2010
Again, just like my last post, this is not really inspiration, like the usual feeling that a poet waits for. It’s more of a response poem. I just know that i was deeply moved by this commercial by the National geographic channel about a certain group of people, or a family who had warts that looked like the bark of trees. This is for them, and perhaps those people who grew up not understanding why they have this or that condition. BTW, i have ADHD, and that’s something I cannot hide. I think that this is also for them, for me, for us.
