Tree in Orange

a tree in Orange was witness to
a man fall down
it's not a large disply
but tree has been here for other days
when cars have lost control
and houses burned to their foundations
in the cold

and children played in the open street
on four July
they watched the summer sky
turn blue then gold then white
and dogs hid under a thousand beds
their eyes drawn wide with fear
while couples huddled in the darkness
of their final year...
