Tara Betts, “The Simple Price of Seeds”

Seeds are the one currency that remains
unspent until they root in pockets of soil
split their hard hulls and offer an exchange
of what fills the stomachs without labs
or stocks exacted. The trade of seeds
is one bartering of coins that could save
us from our own small preferences.
Seeds contain lost possibilities and found
plants that could be the cure and the balm.
