ode to seed

protect your race & mine
bean dream of jade tomorrows
vault creation tale unfurl stem curl
open already veined hands

bean dream of jade tomorrows
parents sheathed you in sliver for fool foragers
open already veined hands
mama embeds fireproof instructions dirt strong

parents sheathed you in sliver for fool foragers
stashed bottom refugee bag ancient desire for land
mama embeds fireproof instructions dirt strong
you stowaway burr slash-n-burn farmer’s pant hem

stashed bottom refugee bag ancient desire for land
baby dimple color of oxblood outfox henchmen
you stowaway burr slash-n-burn farmer’s pant hem
grandpa’s spring gamble gourd futures

baby dimple color oxblood outfox henchmen
vault creation tale unfurl stem curl
grandpa’s spring gamble gourd futures
protect your race & mine
