"Smoke Tree, 30 Below": There's a tree in the sky. / Its shadow branches / Stand out still and substantial / In the billowing white cloud / That pours from the building's smokestack. / Low sun has projected the shape of an aspen / Larger than life, unmoving, / On the river of smoke streaming by. / Light blazes / All around its dark edges: / Oh tall tree like memory, / There and not there / In the eye!
