the mulberry is confused.
she has shed her leaves.
and reasserted them at the same time.
it is late summer.
perhaps a cool few days in february
sent her into this spin.
she has thrown out fruit
as if it were august when
she is ready to celebrate a Tibrogargan spring.
but it isn't spring.
the mulberry is one of many who are confused.
trees, plants, insects.
even kangaroos who used to feed by night
are now uprights and alert in the day.
what have we done to you, poor planet?
