Save The Walnut: Inspired by The Overstory

To the ground,

That the Earth
Is not hollow.

Black Cats
by Susan Gentry


Black
cats at
Halloween
around corners
only shadows seen.
If you spot one

until

Pluck one
pure white hair
in all-black cat
without being scratched,
find great wealth and
good luck in
life and
love

And his fluke just shattered the coral!...
