Master Gardener

as a gardener
 
   not in eden
but
      in the Sonoran desert
 
 
i have to wonder
 
 
what was Adam thinking?
 
 
grabbing a fig leaf
                  to cover
                              his
                                    banana
 
when a squash frond
 
                  would have provided
 
                              much better coverage
 
no wonder
            he
                  was
                        ashamed
