The Nature Look
By Bruce Ario

The bend of the willow tree is very erotic
Especially in the wind as today
I am only a substitute

Or, skipping over the ice on skates
A boy with dreams.
Opposed to grasping,

Where you can hear the song
Birds calling me?
But from my window

I am a foreigner anxious over deportation.

Bruce Ario began writing after leaving law school with an incomplete degree. He experienced a period of homelessness - paying his dues - before landing a position at Tasks Unlimited, a provider of mental health services where he is the editor and writer for the newsletter. His main theme is justice. His webpage is bruceario.com.
