"The Nature Look"

Written 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.
