Seeding

………………
Seeding in a cloud of black flies
kneeling and swatting

lettuce seeds drop
small and humble as asterisks
noting other thoughts of legends
of a universe ripe with proteins
and photosynthesis

of leaves enfolded on dinner plates
being lifted by forks slicked with oil and vinegar,
garnished with mystery,

crisp sweet and fresh as the day of
Let there be light
.
