the tree is art

The tree is art:
its abstract description
open to interpretation.

The portrayal:
a straining toward contact,
the first kiss of lovers,
the electric absence of touch
the tension of hazard.
The moment when paths are taken
and bridges crumble
behind imperilled backs.

lovers held apart,
their arms gripped
by their tragedies,
they cannot commit
their intercourse.

the breaking apart,
when parched love
in a desert of emotion
is conquered
and the tethering of affection
is no longer enough.

Open to interpretation,
its abstract description,
the tree is art.
