244–Mushroom Dancing

i thought about mushrooms a lot today
how they hide and appear out of nowhere
and oh the power they have to make or break
a human being to alter consciousness to
feed the hungry millions dazzle the gourmet
rich and confound the farmer with outcomes
unbelievable like making food and compost
out of wasted coffee turning nuclear waste
into clear land these magicians of god
burying their offspring for later resurrection
are my guides and gurus today i’m thinking
right now about how they turn waste into
dancing love would you not love a bite
though it could kill you? a little knowledge
goes a long way here i ask their spirits to teach
me this dance and stay the night in my home
and teach me to love their ways
