There’s a dragon wind

A man comes to give a quote
For the dead trees
He clears his throat

I think he is going to go with Proust
“Your soul is a dark forest”
Or Gibran (popular at weddings and funerals):
“If you reveal your secrets to the wind
you should not blame the wind
for revealing them to the trees”

Instead he tells us
Two thousand
Two hundred
Cut to the ground.
