*POETRY WARNING* Measuring Stick (Haiku by intervallic augmentation 5/7)
in the bends, branches, fractures
they do not discard.
that which falls in the forest
is susceptible to transformation
- a free for all, up for grabs -
a mere piece of wood retrieved by a boy
is whittled by a pocket-knife lent by his grandfather
and reborn into a measuring stick.
