Inspired by the poem ‘Little Tree’ by e e cummings.
How could I hope to comfort you?
You with your feet hacked off,
your roots left behind –
left behind to be nourished –
fed by your mothers and aunts,
by those unwilling to let go
of the remnants of an existence that once
I have nothing to offer you
by way of sustenance – just
