Hemlock (Tsuga candensis)

200 years took its toll,
broke inside from shake
twisting back into the ground.

James LaMontagne studied creative writing and forestry at the University of Massachusetts and has lived in Montana, Texas, Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Pitch Pine (Pinus rigida)

84 brown tongues
aflame from below,
glossolalia spilling
from their serotinous cones
seeds from hell.
