the girl who talked to trees

they call her forest faerie,
………wildling,
wayward one.

she is all
these things
and more.

she’d tell you their
stories if the moon
would shine just right,
…….but
she has heard their bark,
pressed her palms against
………………their darkness.

 

..
in a
pril, we poem

    So I read this right after I finished watched When They See Us, so my reading is all about this girl being a rape victim, with all those “wilding” boys in Central Park being falsely accused and imprisoned for the crime some quieter psychopath actually committed.

    It’s a stunning poem, though — delicate and beautiful. So on another day, I will read this in a much softer light.
