Text by Denise Cammiade from “Vegetative Seasons”
Plants chisel skywardLean shoots weave through soil, grasp airVein this new drug, sunCorn dreams tall. Orchardscents baste the leafy noon.Grass shears marimba.Asters sprawl mauvely.The cabbage crouch like broodyhens. Rain staples down.Brittle stalks rehearsea subtle sky. Whistle tunessieve the sucked year.
