Bend (PED #11)

Document
Cover Image

You bend


under the softest of touches


bowing before every master


as well as a peasant


A breath can change your position


because your spine is more fragile


than one of a feather


Still,


every time you manage to


come back


you spring up on your elastic backbone


and stay strong until


another blow comes


Just like your sisters


larger and smaller


in every tree


and every bush


you will stay strong until


one day


you are broken


by


an


aggressive


brutal


hand


of wind or man
