another giving tree - by me (broken ladder)

i walked past a man
who had a beer
in his hand at ten a.m.
and was having
a conversation
with a tree -

it was a genuine conversation
with conspiratorial winking
and back slapping
as if they were two
old friends
leaning up against a bar

instead of just a crazy old man
talking to a tree
on a random corner
in the city
