by Huiying Dandelion Chan
tree bark creates homes
that house whole habitats
       photons of sun singe
       scorched skin dry
microscopic drop of rain
flood swamp lands thin
       one drop of leaked oil
       contaminates entire rivers
gusts of wind gut windows
& gutters of pristine homes
       imprints of words
       stunt a plant's lifespan
microcosms of atoms
shape entire societies
       & you think your own skin
       cells insignificant?
