Miracle of Reality

.
I harvest lettuce amazed

after its tiny seed was sown
the stuff of lettuce was nascent in soil
pre-lettuce

to-be lettuce
plumped with imported radiance

would be lettuce

let us  startle the nut within its husk
when suddenly seeds dropped
from a palm cup will find themselves
alone in the dark new folds of
miracle dung and lust
through which lettuce leaves
will thrust

this is a chemistry that blows the saints away
and leaves our scriptures in the dust
