Perspective

I walk
across the ceiling
of the DIA Center
for the Arts
surrounded

by Welsh Oaks,
Rodney Graham’s
photos of leafless trees
growing up from
the sky.

The tangles
of limbs & branches
anchored in the clouds
converge to support
the trunks
&
the spread
of tentacle roots obscured
by the weight of the world,
suspended above
the sky.

Trees keep
the earth from falling,
while artists & poets
can see the world turned
upside down.

They keep
their feet floating over
the ground, with their heads
planted firmly in
the clouds.
