It says adapted from a poem by Nancy R. Smith. A poster at Pacific Middle school, Des Moines, Wa. The kids are gonna be alright. Hopefully.

Body as Garden

With

Swollen heart and sunken chest,

Beleaguered palpatations

Prop up this mess.

Caustic conditioning causes

Apertures of bile

Erodes intestines and

Aerates the soil,

Composting Coffee grounds and

Soy paste meatpatties.

There are no Monarchs

In this garden.
