 Asylum

The mule deer asked for asylum in
my yard.
They hadn’t planned it that way
until my cravings called out for roses,
geraniums & sedums.
Cherry blossom trees to shade my
back that worked so god ever hard
to buy a house.
And the deer weren’t welcome.

If I give them safety
that will put me farther
away from what I have.
They’ re still wild, but they’re starving.
Their hunger pours out truths
as their teeth gnaw the young
beech tree I thought I loved.
