Natural Parody

Bark like and towering—But no tree,

a grotesque metal parody of

nature. A bird that decided to

rest here, might get a shocking

result. Squat buildings behind

a non-tree. A placid sky

background to an Industrial

Reality. What does this

say about our society? Someone is

probably Tweeting about it, but who

knows where real knowledge

went? If you want any recipe,

you have it— Want a Latin

translation? No problem, but can

the internet tell you how bark feels

against trembling fingers? Or what

it feels like to be at the top of a

mountain? The way the air feels,

whipping against bare skin.

The way cerulean rivers flow,

Bursting with fish and life. Nature

brings its own lessons. So, the

question remains what knowledge

can be gained— from a

metal tree?
