CHIA SEEDS



Each morning Neil glugs down
a dietary concoction of chia seeds—
slimy things I find hard to swallow.
A cup of tea keeps me regular.
And chia pets keep me green.
A college classmate, artist David Best
once chia-seeded an old Cadillac.
He mounted a water buffalo to the hood
and lined its sides with broken mirrors.
At night the deer came down to graze
upon the curved beauty of its fenders.
And to gaze at their starry reflections.
