In the woods I am wild (poem) by Cassie Kinney

In the woods I am wild
Standing naked on a stump
I am the tree and branches
With outstretched arms.

Walking in the hills
I am a briar hopper
I am a ridge runner
I am honeysuckler.

From the backwards backwoods
I hold a basket of foraged goods
Of chanterelles and blackberries
Like I am the woods' beneficiaries.

From sea to shining sea
I am the goddamn tis of thee,
I am peace, love, & uncertainty,
I am here to be one with me.
