Radishes grow like children,
when we're not looking.

Plump and blunt.
Rosy and bright.

Thin skin on the outside,
tough, snow white meat on the inside.

Trailing silken roots
which take
in any type of soil,
and pull
without much effort at all.
Zion grew these on the roof in a discarded planter. They had fruited before I even knew they were there.
