                          Mahogany 

                   The Saxophone Player


This majestic tree

      cut on the forest edge

      of a Far East Island chain

Became the ocean liner for the species

                        looking for the promised land

Floating years and holding onto waves

                      beached herself on Alaska sand

Disembarking immigrants to a new shore

     leaving us an alphabet

     embedded in mahogany

Telling us

     to live in harmony with nature

                                               or no more
