marooned

An erasure poem from a page in M. Moore's classic: 
Medicinal Plants of the Mountain West.                  


Rumex crispus (yellow dock)



                   alternate


whole


even    in   the   snow


ditches   and   sumps

                                 
                  roadsides


and                streams


drier          meadows


                         thick

roots


boil        in       water


                   consume


after

                    
marooned


by         a         pond
