I Planted My Garden by Joan McNerney

I planted my garden

on the wrong side

of moon forgetting

tides of ocean

lunar wax wane

only madness

was cultivated

there underground

tubular roots

corpulent veins

flowers called

despair gave off

a single fruit…

I ate it

my laughter

becoming harsh

my eyes grew

oblique.
