A tree died

A tree died near my office
this afternnon
tall and old, lazy as a tray
It did nothing much
just made
the sky look good sometimes
I think 
it talked to the day

Maybe it was friends 
with the building beside
maybe they laughed together
in the night
I don't know really
never bothered to ask
of what its job was
or why it came
and stood where it stayed

I should have, though.

or at least taken
a photograph with it
so that I won't forget
all the strange angles it made
when it did nothing much all day
