Poetry Corner – 2.18C “Just Beet It”

Blood red

The veins threading this plane

A film of dirt slides off in cool water

The stem bleeds in a subtle drip

Splotching stainless steel

They suggested gloves, I remember

A magenta fingerprint

Greens sigh in the air, waiting

The oven chimes when the root is ready
