Lumber

Lumber 2/24

Bundle the past and walk with it
There is the clearing in the woods
There is the house in the clearing

History is a thing that stiffens
Like peaks in meringue or gingerbread
The house is made of the stuff

And old woman lived here and she
Carried so much history that her
Bones snapped many times over

Bundle the past walk with it and
Leave these woods quickly as you
Came in an never never look back
