Just Beneath

It’s just beneath

the surface,

the skin,

the black and white

image proof.

Cutting in

and out spills a spectrum

of blood and hues,

like broken rain.


The forest is

not the trees,

it is all the roots,

and the dead things

that get fed upon

when they go

just beneath

what we see.



is not obvious,

it is vagrant,


and we are ignorant,

willfully so.

We don’t even

believe our eyes

when we see

just beneath.



HG – 2019
