Parts Of A Tree

i would lower them to you as bait
and trick you into eating the apple

If i was like the bark

and spray my poison into your breath

If i were the roots

If i were rings in the wood
i could watch myself get older
and see how i expand

if i was a seed
i could follow the wind far away
and finally start a new life

But i am just a leaf

and you pick me up once again

...i close my eyes in order to see...
