Under The Soil by Celia Turner

Poet Bio

quartered potato was buried
its blind eye activated.
White shoot emerges
threading through soil
seeking sun, kiss of air,
roots rampage,
nutting nodules,
replicating tubers
to swell, suck moisture,
fulminate flesh to harvest
cook, steam, tantalize,
be graced by rivulets
of butter, fueled from
greenest of grass
passing-through
digested
once more to earth.
