a very thick forest

i saw a tree
standing lone in a hay field
and i saw it and said
oh what a beautiful tree
and then there was a forest
and i noticed i didn't notice
any one tree in particular
to say that i saw how
beautiful it was
this is why there are
mods and goths
and hippies and gods
and presidents and kings
and poets who sing
and queers and freaks
and priests and geeks
and winners and thieves
and doctors and me
and any living thing
who knows they are living
in a very very very
thick forest
