Warm Front
Witten by Michelle Tucci, Casco

Lithe birch and robust oak
sway in the breeze
as if blown by the breath
of some bluesy trumpet
in a side alley dive,
people by movement
and intentional dissonance.
The brass blows hard
as the crowd forms
and re-forms,
while the off-putting fir
stands erect
in the center of it all—
lugged Brute!
