That moment [this morning]

That moment [this morning] as
I ploughed up rancid thoughts/
My earbud batteries were long
flat – so no dull of painful recall
& disturbances from my recent
past [& others’ scripted words]
was not a possibility – not until
I halted – & looked at a tree – &
thought That tree doesn’t give
a toss about my problems/ I’m
looking at it [thinking about it] –
letting it in [not others] – all I’ve
read in my just-gone years – all
our self-helping words & those
of my counsellor & worn lovers
[& true family] – all that wisdom
& kindness sits in branches – it
responds – resist thought – now
