Lying in a Field AKA My Bed

you are the tall stringy grass
where i lie and wait to be engulfed
under the poppies and dander:
the thin strand i wish to pluck
and chew over in my back teeth
as the cud works its way down my throat—
i feel the sprouts within me,
giving my blood the sweet sugars in your stalks.
