The format of this poem is important to me, so I put a screenshot first. ✌️

ANOTHER. STEP.

Another step
The flowerbeds pop and bloom, another step
Petals drop, trees rise, branch, another step
Fresh bark, rot, trunks-split fall, down, up, another step
The dirt blossoms gardens, collapse, flow, another step
Sunlight circles on green sprouts, venting, open, closed, open, closed
Another step
Another step
Another step
Lushest orchards, blown away, inhaled back, another step
Fruit suspended, plump, plunked, shriveled, seeds, ascend
Another step
Rosy bramble bushes berry, prickled stems dry, weaving, in-out
Another step
Black forests surge close, swell, explode; cuckoos nest, fly
Another step
Glassy streams trickle, shatter, cease… gush, gurgle, trickle
Another step
Day, another step
Night, another step
Hot star, another step
Star bath, another step
Another step
Another step
Flourishing color, swift gray, death, illumination, another step
Mud, splosh, grass, soft, patchy path, my straight orbit to heaven
Another step
