Horse herb legs around

and a fungus

rots the remains of elm root


Our native meadow “lost

to the plow”    You devour

habitat           are the brown-

headed cow bird


Heather wants bracted twisted flowers

wants me to twist T shirts

and dip them into dye


I smear the stove with avocado


Now Lady Elms arrives

in the kitchen       long blonde hair

lean body    leaves

She shows me a profile and a letter


Everyone is a sexual being
