Garden Logic

Garden Logic

In the garden you think there are no disgusting things.
These worms squiggling into the mud below
squiggle cleanly.

A spider lives to eat the other bugs.

The other bugs look handsome next to the petals
and bark, dark legs like eyelashes.

The mind you wear into the garden
possesses wisdom not your own.

Shit is great flower food.

The desiccated bird corpse,
tiny cracked cage of bones
in a handful of flung feathers,

the earth will take it.


  1. quite interesting. what we think to be disqusting, to the earth it is a menu.

    good write. deviates from the common or normal human meaning of aesthetic


  2. Something tells me it's all happening...in the garden.
    I do believe it, I do believe it's true...

    Enjoyed this so much.
