Yellow Finches Drop From A Plane Tree

Crosses of sunlight burn through the sugar maple

                each afternoon in little crucifixions.

Blue-black lake like an 8-mm film,

              its name means  "hig winds"

in a language not spoken by local Indians.

How does a tree move when it is angry?

I want to be angry like that.
