Protecting the Rain Forest

I want to protect the rain forest.
I want the rain forest to exist, so I can protect it.

The good and the bad face us in cinematographic reality.
I still want to protect the rain forest for love of the unknown.
For birds I will never see.
For their emerald eggs.
For all I know not what I am doing.

Every night, I dance with patches of darkness.
I imagine the song of the birds in the canopy.
I imagine the panoply of beings on the forest floor.
The rain forest is my idea. I know
it wants to protect me.
