Defined as: lumber that does not meet grade, but is still usable

My heart is rot
In a stretching
Maple, with candied bark,
Aching branches,
Half-rooted out
Of the ground.
If taken to the lumber yard,
It could make a few
Culled boards,
My heart imprinted,
A gnarled, sticky
Groaning face
To be built
Into a birdhouse.
