Deep in the Forest [Free Verse]

What happens in the
strange, nearsighted
isolation of the forest? --

sounds dulled by 
thick, soft moss
and masked 
by burbling water,
and insect buzz,
and bird song

What happens to the
rude mechanicals
who venture too deep
into those soft but terminal
lands? --

where the last stand
of life plays out
