Spiked Outreach
By Kathleen Finn Jordan

Spike like pronged edge reaching for what
Sharpened edges crying out yet pushing off
Bursts of light, sea, places to run, refuel
Or stay, parched and thirsty in the sun
Womb like center deep and safe
now brittle and sharp
Stiff in the wind, cracking and screaming loud
A troubled cut down branch, rootless and seeking more
Once leafy and welcoming, nest for birds and squirrels
now victim of the ax and shears
Deadened wood reminding us of a lush planet betrayed
Waste and greed slurping the life out of nature.
For a buck.
