Kept Landscape

Kept Landscape

The woods were quiet at first
with snow and the trees were without

No one noticed the landscape within you
even as the seasons fluttered

and rattled
and reached tendrils up your throat

and maybe a bird came out
with some snow when you coughed

Now that the woods have found your voice
you keep exposing
us to all that has been at work on you
