Powerlines

These trees
giving the impression of
bend but don’t break.
Letting us have our space
tending carefully to our power lines
as they criss-cross areas
of open road
in the wilderness
at the edges of farms
along our avenues
having been shaped for a purpose
their branches forming hands forming cradles
keeping everything just so
as we expect it.
