A Story of ………. ?

2018 Press Club Brynn Treepo poemcrop

On the day of my birth I was born under a tree.

A one so odd and unknown but I had yellow eyes so I thought I wasn’t seeing properly. No.

Then I thought I had damaged my eyes. No.

So then I thought I should look at others eyes. But not a single one had yellow eyes.

Wow I thought. Then I asked if I was another species?

Yes. I didn’t have my heart beating, days passed well a year, so I knew I was something else.

I was turning into a tree they said I was a Treepo.
