Thinking, It's Ok to Discuss

Michelle Taransky
This— The best tree
Is sick now, now discuss
Where to look, discuss:
The cause, and, if
Possible, discuss who
Could have prevented
The workers who are working
To prevent, and if it happens then
Prepares to discuss how bodger will
Recognize people saying "sick"
Everywhere, discuss how to handle
Discussing one sickness as if 
That sickness is the other
Sickness— Ok, sickness
Ok to say ok discuss
Discuss the landscape
When it changes from woods
To sorry. To not the ideal 
Tree to use as the marker
Beginning a discussion by a river
May confuse explanation with justification,
And, how to avoid, when I say I need
A new chair to work, you think:
I am using the chair as a metaphor
