Growing Space
He grasps at the heals of the beans, coiling up their bodies
one by one as he spreads between them.
He pins them to the bamboo shoots to hold them upwards,
using their just-formed fruits for hand holds.

their bodies stretched thin from working to escape his hold.
At seasonʼs end his flowers drop over their roots now thin
and severing.
