how the tree
and people enter
through the mother’s
to sit down
in the pews

i am of course fascinated by the skeleton… 😀 but this poem is so powerful! i immediately see images in my mind. and it makes me think of all the truly bizarre things we miss by not putting them into certain words (by not noticing them).
Thank you! A good time for noticing the bizarre is in the morning before one´s fully awake, dipping in and out of sleep, having pen and paper within reach.
