Inflorescence

Poem I wrote about trees and gender.

“I am the true vine, and my father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit, he takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, he prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.” John 15:1-8

if I die, I wanna be a tree,

we all take the Bible so literally,

seems to me God thinks

we should be trees

so let’s let His? will be

when I die I’ll become one

I’ll stand proud and tall

with roots firm in ground

and branches for all

the perfect fruit that I bear

will be ripe and true

a source for all life

to take and consume

my seeds will fall

there they will spread

to strengthen my roots

and empower my spren

 

Tree of Heaven

 

is what I’ll be called

monoecious

to the bane of you all
