I planted them almost a week ago
and nothing, not a single seed as grown.
It’s not as if I think there should be fruit
that’s ready to be eaten. After all
it’s only been a week, but shouldn’t there
be something poking out? A single leaf
from just one seed? Is that too much to ask?
I don’t expect a bean stalk overnight.
It’s not that I’m impatient but you see
it’s almost been a week. But nothing. Zilch.
I could have built the bloodyTaj Mahal
and flown to Mars or to Uzibeckistan
in half the time the seeds are taking. Grow!
I’ll never have tomatoes. Grow! Hello,
you only have one single thing to do,
so do it! Get your lazy butts in gear.
I am not asking for the moon you know.
I’m only asking for a single leaf.
It’s been almost a week so come on, grow!
