If I only pluck only the weakest seedlings.

Am I some kind of monster?

If I pick only the biggest seedlings?

Am I an idiot?

I dream of crispy radishes

Tender garden greens

Vinegar

Salt

Sugar

and Cream

But even the memory

Of last year’s feast

Cannot help me decide

Which seedlings

To kill.
