Poplar Opinion


…veneer sandpapered away,

an unvarnished me


tell you most logs

in your eye

ring hollow


concentrically tell you

–the whine filling

these not-wholes

is cheap as chuck,


tell you there’s too much of it, too,

whinO’s paradise

sticky sweet sap which

lack of pith


is a pity

–and rust that blights–


me trees’


tell you this phyl’um should

zip it

or at the very least

stop carving trunk unilaterally,


tell you initials are enough—

not an entire




-less is more…
