Decomposition

In the forest
an idle car
accepts
the dew
that slips
past paint
into its dents
and dings
to spring
rust into life
so oxidation
may slowly
consume
the steel
leaving
rimless tires
and upholstery
to be covered
by wind
blown dirt
and leaves
to the berry bushes
that grow
from the seeds
the wind
and birds
drop off
or others
store
in the nooks
and crannies.
