Eat your heart out

Acres of wild seagrass
       beneath turquoise waters
skirting the rugged shore
       and we are mineral beings
living literally off the fat
       of the land and the sea

we who are organically
       water and calcium and iron
and carbon and phosphorus
       and oxygen and nitrogen
and biochemically
       so much more – driven
by edible energies to love
       and be loved
