Fruiting Bodies

FullSizeRender

Fruiting bodies
Like fleshy fingers
Examining the other world,
Of air and light.

And beneath
In the thready net,
Mycelium reach
Through the body

Of the earth
Drawing nutrient
From the discarded clothes
Of everything

Let loose
And shed.
The raw components
Once more

Spent
In transition
Of beneficence
Reinvigorated.
