lake to lake walk: swirly

Tree bark.jpg

look at my legs

they’re up straight
in the air

look at my bark

it’s swirly

can you see my knees
they don’t bend much
but
they’re straight ones

they’re really straight ones

I think my toes
are growing hairy

leafy

do you think
I ought to touch
them

ha ha
no use

I can’t reach them

but
I’ve got straight legs

long legs

and swirly

my bark
is swirly
