Animal, Vegetable, or Mineral: April 2015 PAD Chapbook Challenge, Day Five

If I had to pick one, I guess I’d say
mineral. If I had to pick one, I guess I’d say
feldspar. Maybe it has veins or tiny pores
to let the ants come in. Maybe I’m
a chunk of feldspar growing in your garden,
something like a beet or a large, silent ox—

animal
vegetable
mineral

an earthly trinity that can’t be contained.
