Sister Tree/Brother Grass (What You Can Do In The Yard That You Can’t Do At The Barber Shop During Spring Shut Down)

The very, very large maple
as part of life’s cycle
dropped leaves (seemingly tons
of leaves) in the dune grass
choking the grass from
it’s very own life cycle.
The man, not wanting the
grass to suffer
and not wanting to
destroy the CO2 absorbing
and oxygen expelling tree,
had the tree trimmed to a crew cut
and the leaves raked
and the grass got its annual cut
and the tree breathes
and the grass grows
and there were thanks
all around —
not to mention
the tree trimmers
and the grass cutter
and rakers
who got bonuses.
