The Space Between Trees

ISSUE:  Fall 2023

It isn’t the trees but the space

between the trees, two oaks

growing so close together they

might be one, the way they

shimmer, the air-broken sun-

light, insects emerging from

lichen-painted bark, the way

everything talks to everything,

pinpoints of light within the light…

stand between all of it—if one

is dying, the other will hold it.
