a heavier question to ponder than most,
these peas that look out for each other, can we eat them?
if we can't eat peas, is broccoli game, or butternut squash,
blades of grass sing together, weeds wiggle under fences
together, what if every plant talks, our ears will grow
deaf with their chorus of protest, their wilting
gazes, we will turn away hungry
for what, we wonder.
