Poem

The enemy came
Kill my head
Destroy my body
And steal my legs
My eye watching

They started calling me names:
Garden seat
Dog’s resting place
Ant’s hiding cave
Millipede’s breakfast menu

But they remembered not
I am a stump, I don’t die
Though I die, I still rise
Though I fall, I still stand

My wounds always multiply
My scars sprout like
Stars after sun shine in September
The zygote of my xylem
Has the zeal to zest
