Fungi Hates Tillage

Fungi likes the earth to be thread

the skeins unraveled out

and out across land

and fungi does understand

the need

for crops, for food, for

the turning turning

over of the dirt, the turning of that sun-

warmed soil. Fungi still

likes crumbs, likes rich, likes

the dark that will stain

fingernails. The compact,

the empty, the threadless

reminds fungi of loss

in the labyrinth. How,

how does one find

their steps back

without that ball of string?
