Will Work For Food

.
hands in dirt
I build butternut mounds

lift stones from tilth
left in Pleistocene 

ice-age bones kicked-up day before
by big gas machine

crows hop from row to row
stab bills in ground

come up each time
with grub, worm or millipede
snap turret heads around

I’m still …. still …..
—but twitch

three go
they levitate into a tree

I sow
I drop seed after seed
