This Twisted Old Tree, a poem

For the blue air
        I contort to the side
    I writhe to the sky
            I grasp with my branches
        I gasp with my leaves

                In a straight up forest
            I'm crooked and mean
                    This twisted old tree
                I've put roots down here
                        Where no one's like me
The twisted old tree
