Black Forest

Have you ever set foot on a black forest?

Everything black against the deep blue sky

blackbirds and black thoughts ascend up high

black tree trunks

black leaves

and even black butterflies

I saw a black thought dangling from a tree

and very quickly it fell down on me

It crawled up my spine

and slithered into my brain

And as I left the forest

I forgot to do one thing

to deliver my black soul
