Clumped Industry Lumber – Grace Wirzba

A handful of bright ochre leaves

Pressed tight and laid on the makeshift table

In front of each of you

Now they are squashed and limp.

A play structure is made of old tires

Now my hands are black from climbing up and over

In and out

Making homes of semi circles

It smells moist and moss, blue and green

3 twigs on a log, I told you they were a gift.
