Emergent Strategy

Adrienne Maree Brown

“What is easy is sustainable. Birds coast when they can.”

—Adrienne Maree Brown, Emergent Strategy

the place where we once had a picnic
is now underwater

that one thick branch
of the shade tree
is now hovering
over the rippling surface

its trunk submerged—
holding its breath
for us
