My daughter loves them

she calls them beautiful flowers

they have always been my favorite

hard to maintain and fruitful

bearing seeds that spread like wildfire

food to the flesh and to the soil

growing uncontrollably

only recently have they been seen as less than

something to kill

because they stubbornly misbehave

and grow wherever the wind blows the seeds
