Secretive Soil Fauna


of the fungi

I have done


apart no crime

can come


sintered slew

mite and nematode


accosting in

the earliest makeshift


roots’ most intimate



ever you crowd

the crowded shades


close to

blue mold spikes



impacts of


the inexhaustible

crimp and sinus


plot just

how is it you


think you can

come in here and


scut the fatty mastics



the antagonies

the parsimonies
