The Oak Tree

That oak tree

is not really an oak tree.

That oak tree

is only an oak tree

because you call it an oak tree.

Maybe you should stop lying to yourself.

Heath Brougher lives in York, PA, and attended Temple University. Although he is 35 years old and has been writing his entire life, he did not begin to submit his work for publication until March of 2014, so he feels like he has a lot of catching up to do. His work has appeared or is forthcoming in Diverse Voices Quarterly, Icebox Journal, Mobius: The Journal of Social Change, BlazeVOX, Main Street Rag, Otoliths, *82 Review, Of/with, MiPOesias, Carnival, Five 2 One Magazine, Bird’s Thumb, Stray Branch, Inscape, and elsewhere.
