we stand in trees

we stand in trees poem by steven james humphreys

we who stand in trees

of delight and sorrow

an orange madness breeze

shines down on

our city of darkness

we endure so many days undone

and many hungry hands

await in moral turpitude

for their own divinity to be delivered…

only when those relentless bullets

fire from the gun

of God’s fury,

all sullen city dwellers

must sink down

into blazing

hot white sands

of burning forgiveness.
