Day after day. Nothing happening. We lose interest. “You must water them,” urges our beloved teacher, Mrs. Peters.

yes we water
yes we wait
and still nothing

One morning, though, I glance, and again, at a green fleck dwarfed by a glint of mica when I shift my weight. Flick it with my thumb. Carefully. Return to my seat. Perplexed.

The day is long. Before leaving  for home I  give it a  half hearted check—a muscular arch has breached the dark earth only since morning, its shining new green coil a little sticky to the touch. The suddenness suddenly

thank you bean
thank you milk carton
thank you silence
