Logging Truck


Truck rolling by,

logs quivering


Was it clearcut,

this timber?

Extracted from the

Clayoquot or Algonquin,

the Gitksan maybe,

disrupting caribou,

destroying habitats,

inciting boreal



to stewards

indigenous to this land.

Oh, this rig is only

partway down

the country from

wherever it was


but it’s grinding

more than gears

now, as it goes.
