Field's Valentine

To taste pennycress
from peppergrass
or shepherd’s purse
alien on waste ground
throughout how
many flower families
are there Roger are
we supposed to know
to gather to eat
oxalis or plantain
for when the soul
overwhelms the body
or when the body
bullies the spirit
losing all sense of
what’s best for it
