This selection, chosen by Guest Curator H.V. Cramond, is from Field Guide to Invasive Species of Minnesota by Interstellar Flight Press in 2021.
There is no catching the fruits that
shivered, quivered, and rivered inside you.
There is no eating back the bush—
not with the help of goats or swine,
not fried into buckthorn flour pancakes.
There is only you
counting the replicating drupes
until the numbers get too large.
Forcing your way
through the ecophagic wood
as it slavers, quavers, and slivers
And soon there will be no you.
Just endless, reproducing
