"Irreducible Squash"

factual zucchini

imperceptible squash

you lurk lizard-like

under the flat umbrella leaf

absorbing the summer morning

not in any greeting-card way

but rather nonchalantly

to say that growth

and green

do not depend

on concepts precepts

theorems paradigms schemata

gridlines ledger sheets or other astutely arranged algorithms

you will grow expand harden your tough green skin

ultimately they won’t even be able to eat you
