Pressure From Above

The wind chime was complaining of being battered by its partner
The air didn’t mean to be so mean
Something stronger was provoking
such violent movement
Pressure from above
divinely scheduled
or did man
More usual that it was soft, almost soothing in its
less than metered choreography
In the wake of its chaos the wind was felling leaves too
perfect timing
There was no complaining coming from grubs
on the ground
except for where humans did use their violence to rake them
from where they should have fallen
Can all mammals choose to hold their breath
while under water
Nature selects
Nature meant for caterpillars to have their leaves
Leave the leaves alone humans who can hold their breath
as they please
under water
unless someone else is holding them down.
