Outlier

by AG SYNCLAIR

in the orchard
among half naked trees

I squat among mounds of fallen fruit
their browning death

hastened by
a dilatory sun.

their waxwing perched above
makes no effort to speak

there is nothing the trees haven't already heard,
everything I touch here is dying

as is the day.
