Driving in a car with my friend in what felt like a national park
She said 'you need to choose your totem tree'
So I did and she said 'no not that one...
You likely chose it because your focus followed the cut line'
So I said 'okay, let's drive on'
And we did
I saw another tree in the distance
Old growth, huge, like a Redwood
And I said 'that one!'
Just then, the tree came crashing down in the distance far on the road ahead
The fallen tree then surged towards us on the highway
Feverish pursuit roots and all
My friend put the car in reverse and we raced backwards to escape the menacing tree
That's how this Tuesday started for me
More than a little barking
