marooned

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


Rumex crispus


                 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
